This site is much easier to navigate.
Much prefer it.
Did I miss the page with teams and their states?

I saw the team list. Just looking for one that has the State they come from as well.

You'll have to get those manually as far as I'm aware :P

MIT is less than three weeks away! Does anybody have any new predictions?

1. Harriton
2. LASA
3. Clements
4. Acton-Boxborough
5. Enloe
6. WWPN
7. Columbia
8. Mentor
9. Chattahoochee
10. Bayard Rustin

My predictions aren't too far off from anyone else's, but Acton-Boxborough is looking to be a lot stronger than in previous years, so that will be interesting to see.

Hopefully thermo will be run better this year, since there were many problems last year. I suggest using a bucket heater with a temperature controller rather than a hot plate to heat the water. Also, using preheated syringes to measure the volume of water will greatly improve precision and reduce heat loss. I hope you take my suggestions into consideration!

Note: AB always brings two unstacked teams to its invitationals, so either getting 4th may be a bit high even for my optimistic mind.

I definitely agree. Thermodynamics was horrifically ran last year, especially in some of the earlier time slots. At one point one of the proctors was asking us to predict the temperature of the outside/external beaker. Also the proctors were goofing around and laughing while spilling some of the water they were pouring into our beaker. When we questioned them about it, they simply replied with "eh, close enough" and called up the next team. I am really hoping for a better experience this year.
