Mousetrap Nationals

Post by ccasediaz »

We are filming our mousetrap tomorrow but do not know how much time we have from opening up the "code word" to when we need to submit the video. Does anyone know if there is a time parameter? We have not opened anything up yet and don't see the time to upload listed on any of the rules.

You have 48 hours from the time you access the code word. Final upload deadline for teams is Wednesday, May 19 by 11:59 MST.

So the "100minutes" access time is just 100 minutes to see the code word?

I can't find that in the rules. Also, after taking a closer look, the Mousetrap rules don't seem to limit teams to "48 hours" after accessing the code word, which was included in the Elastic Launch Glider mods, but is not in the Mousetrap mods....

Yes! That’s why I had a question about it. Gravity vehicle specifically says 5 hours so I would assume it would be similar. When accessing the scioly platform the mousetrap event says 100 minutes for the test when you are accessing the code word, but that seems too fast to be able to take pictures, video and upload in that short amount of time. We were able to do it all within 3 hours but not 100 minutes. It’s a little confusing.

MV has no time limit to submit the material needed after accessing the Target Distance, while GV has a 5 hour window to do so. However ALL teams, both Div. B and Div. C doing MV or GV must have the required pics, Practice Log, and video submitted by the deadline of 11:59 PM MST tonight.
