-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.
You might get useful and reasoned answers that will help you run the event, but they are not official answers.
For official answers you must go to the National site, www.soinc.org and submit your question there. BUT, they are not yet set up to start answering questions for this year, we are either a week or a month away, don't remember.

First off... READ the rules very carefully. Build something that meets those rules. Test what you have, if it doesn't do what you wanted, observe what didn't work and change it. Tweek what did work. Trial and error? Yes. Keep a log for yourself, what materials used, lengths, weights, times.. whatever will help you decide what to change. Did I mention READ the rules very carefully. The more time you put in the better you will look at competition. Good luck!bookworm2110 wrote:I have never done a build event, and neither has my partner.

Don't start too late on the data collection! Yes it is important to have a well made device but this event is mainly about how much time you've spent collecting data. Also I would be careful and make sure you are prepared for a variety of things at competition. The rules seem very open as to what the proctor can do.bookworm2110 wrote:I have never done a build event, and neither has my partner. This seems mostly like trial and error, though. Any tips?
I'm going to some invitationals before regionals and would recommend you do the same if possible! Best of luck!
