This sounds way too fun for New York. We should steal this event for WA. ;)

This event looks very interesting.

Wish it was there for NJ. But I am pretty sure we have not announced trials yet so hope remains.

New York, New York. Why New York? You had two choices for California: Southern and Northern. Yet, you picked New York.
Duct tape challenge? What do you do in that? Oh, build a structure.

Don't worry, we've done it NC before (but we've just gotten rid of it...). Welp. It's essentially Mystery Architecture but all you get is Duct Tape, scissors, maybe paper and whatever else they decide to give you.

I'm pretty sure New York chose to run the event, and the event did not choose to be run in New York. That's generally how that dynamic works.

Duct Tape Challenge Wiki wrote:As with some other events, Duct Tape Challenge will not reveal the task required until the competition date. It may seem tempting to skip preparation altogether because of this. In reality, there are multiple ways to prepare. The rules give multiple scenarios (bridge, parachute, etc.) so it would be helpful to practice all of these, especially with a time constraint. This will not only give a feel for the event and it's pace, but also experience with working with duct tape and craft supplies quickly. In addition, if the competition ends up using a scenario from the rules, it will be easy to carry out the building, as a plan has been made ahead of time.
my events tend to deal with really big or small things ..
so now i do fermi : ^)

You would spend your time preparing for other events, instead.

I think the best reason for this events’ existence is to heighten the experience for alternates. Important to keep in mind- Duct Tape Challenge won’t have an impact on the team score, it won’t determine if your team advances, so if your goal is to help your team, practice the other 23 events.

Still - there are going to be a bunch of kids, likely younger ones, who get their first-ever SciO medal with this event. That’s huge! I guess it would be worthwhile to play with some tape and explore the different ways you can manipulate it, but I think you’d have just as good a chance at success if you went in unprepared.

U could probably still medal without practicing.

I'm pretty sure I'm not that stupid.

An entire event based on duct tape. Is there a trial event for WD-40 as well?
Remember, we are proud of every team that participated and you are all winners.
