I would encourage you to not jump to conclusions- the incident you mentioned was another team using the outlet near Athens home base, the adult there was supervising the use of the dremel tool. Niether Athens, nor the team using the outlet had help from coaches or parents beyond basic supervision and insruction.First of all sorry if youre from harriton and got offended that wasn't the intent. And to anyone who says teams dont cheat and that they are how about the fact that I have overheard the coaches and parents there talking about what they did, im not even kidding, at states there was even some adult using a dremel on something from athens, they absolutely do NOT build everything themselves and it didn't take a forensics team to realize that
I'm one of the two who competed for Harriton in optics at states! As Ceram said, I remember it took 60-70 seconds for us, and we got about 24 mm off. Those are approximate numbers though. That means we got nearly the same score on the laser shoot! So unless we got the same score on the test, I guess it would have come down to that. Yeah, the mirrors were a bit weird, I agree. Definitely not 5 cm, and the frames made it difficult. It took us longer than normal too. I'm sure that happened to a whole lot of teams. We didn't find the test so difficult either, so I'm sure we were very close!This is random and delayed :p very very delayed
But could anyone from Harriton find out and reply (if they still remember) their time/distance on the laser shoot at states.
I was one of the 2 members in Optics for Rustin and we were wondering as to how much that played into us getting 2nd rather than 1st (if any, but im assuming so based upon ). Our jigs didn't fit with the size of the mirror stand there, so we ended up taking around 110 seconds (total fail ) and got 11mm off. We didn't find the test that difficult, and felt we had 0-2 wrong in all likelihood.
~Anyways GL at nationals
Shady Side is driving, its about 10 hours... not that bad...
