So it says that timing stops when the final task stops moving. However, if it never moves, but yet it was intended to, would the timing then be stopped?
If it never moves, then timing would stop at 180.0 seconds per 4.f.

How are you all planning on dropping the tablets into the water for the effervescence task? I was thinking about using a magnet but wanted to see if there were any suggestions.

Magnets are definitely your best bet.

Do you think it would be considered electrically powered if electricity was used to drop a weight(not powered directly) that turned a screw or activated any non-electrical tasks?

It depends on which task came before that one. If an electrical task was used prior to this, you may be able to get away with it by wording your ASL carefully. However, you can't use this as the scorable magnet task because you used electricity.

Can we use an EV3 brick in our project and some of its sensors to help carry out our overall project?

I am pretty sure it is banned. Nothing programmable.

So far through the season, I have been using a 9v battery to power my entire apparatus. However, I noticed that the rules never state that you cannot have more than 9v in total of batteries on your device. It only states, as I interpret, that each individual battery cannot be more than 9v and that the voltage across any two points may not exceed 9v. Does this mean you can have multiple 9v batteries powering different curcuits and multiple 9v batteries in parallel?

Pretty sure that you can have multiple circuits that each have their own battery, but the voltage in each individual circuit cannot surpass 9V.

My device has multiple circuits each powered by its own 9v battery.
