Question: The Detailed Event Description under “Rules” does not mention that a pencil will be on the event build table. However, a pencil is listed under “Tools” in the coach slides. Will WESO provide a pencil or other writing implement on the competition build table.
Answer: Yes, a pencil will be supplied.
Please remind us the potential distance range for the target. I seem to remember being told to anticipate somewhere between 100 and 700 centimeters. Please confirm or correct.
Please read through the Detailed event description carefully where you will find under #20
The center of the target will lie on a line that is extended perpendicularly from the center of the front of the launcher. The target will be between 7 and 17 meters from the launcher. The approximate distance of the target from the launcher will be announced no later than three weeks prior to the Olympiad. This value will be announced as a range of plus or minus one half meter. No exact distance will ever be provided. The actual target distance may be different for different grades
You will find this and other important information at the WESO website
Question: about On Target and the use of a ‘balance scale’- Is a balance scale a two-pan balance scale where students will need to compare masses or a single pan balance scale where students will compare their rocket to a known mass? Sorry If this addressed in the coaches meeting that I missed- Thanks!
