Can a team use repeated sequences of dominoes in their device?

by on Sep.12, 2019, under Uncategorized

*This is an important question!  Look at rule B11.  Teams CAN use dominoes in their devices, but not have a device ‘based largely on dominoes’, or ‘have most of their device relying on dominoes’.  What does ‘most’ mean?  ‘Most’ of a device would mean 1/2 (50%) or more of the steps in a device relying on dominoes.  If a team had most of their device relying on dominoes and didn’t follow this rule, judges would likely not give that team a qualifying score for the challenge.  So a team MAY use dominoes, but make sure you don’t use them too much!  This isn’t meant to be a dominoes challenge!  🙂

What will count as a ‘musical instrument’?

by on Sep.12, 2019, under Uncategorized

A ‘musical instrument’ that can be used in this challenge should be one used in a typical elementary or middle school music or band class.  For example, music instruments such as kazoos or slide whistles are allowed.  A stick hitting a paper or folder, or a nail hitting a can however would not.  The safest thing to do if you have ANY doubt about whether a musical instrument would be permitted would be to check with your coach and have your coach submit a question on the blog just to be sure!
