Revision as of 02:40, 20 June 2019

This is a collection of pictures and videos of devices that placed in the top ten at the 2019 National Tournament at Cornell University. Feel free to add more pictures and/or videos of devices. If possible, please include a description about your device. Because everyone benefits when we share, devices that did not place in the top ten are sometimes allowed.

The Best of Nationals pages highlight the best devices for building events from recent national tournaments. All photos and videos of devices on these pages are submitted by users.

Battery Buggy (Division B)

30th Place

These pictures were submitted by MadCow2357, who competed for Gallagher Middle School. The buggy was 9.2 cm wide, and he consistently achieved scores of below -25 during practice with a 20 cm can bonus. It clocked below 3 seconds on most runs, even though it was 1.5kg and hard to accelerate. Unfortunately, the buggy hit the outer can both runs at Nationals, costing him a finish in the Top 10 and causing him to place poorly. See forums post: https://scioly.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=287&t=14607#p393173

Credits to windu34, markuswso17, and Bazinga+ for much help and guidance. Feel free to PM MadCow2357 with any additional questions/comments.
