The following is a list of pages pertaining to Mission Possible for Division C. Some of these pages may contain outdated information.

List of Tasks

Starting Action

Students must remove a magnet from the device, starting the first action. The removal of magnetic force must set in motion the rest of the device.

Balloon Task

Students must utilize a chemical reaction to inflate a balloon that strikes an object at least 20 cm away from it, which continues the sequence of events.

Endothermic Task

Students must utilize a reaction, probably chemical, which activates the next task based on the reduction in temperature.

Exothermic Task

Students must utilize a reaction that produces light to activate a photo cell and triggers the next action.

Water Task

Students must add water to a closed container so it completes an electrical circuit and triggers the next action.

Infrared Task

Students must use an infrared beam so a transmitter and receiver 20cm apart begin the next action.

Photochemical Task

Students must use light to initiate the next action.

High IMA Pulley Task

Students must use a pulley system with an IMA of at least 7 that lifts an object of at least 500g 10 vertical cm before it triggers the next action.

Low IMA Pulley Task

Students must use a pulley system with an IMA of 0.50 that lifts an object of at least 500g 19 vertical cm before it triggers the next action.

Lever Task

Students must use the mechanical advantage of all 3 classes of levers in sequence before triggering the next action.

Coin Flip Task

Students must flip an unmodified US quarter airborne so that it goes from heads to tails before it triggers the next action.

Gas Expansion Task

Students must use a change in temperature that expands a gas to trigger the next action.

Electromagnet Task

Students must activate a student made electromagnet that triggers the next action.

Ending Action

Students must make the device play a recording of the phrase "The End" to signal the end of the run.
