Number Students Allowed

Impact Safety Glasses (ANSI Z87.1+)

Questions: We are looking for clarification on the Rubber Band Helicopter instructions. The scoring area includes the following text:  Teams are also placed in tiers based on adherence to the challenge instructions. Within each tier, teams will be ranked based on the scoring criteria for the challenge.  Tier 1: Teams with no violations.  Tier 2: Teams whose device loses a part or has golf fall out. Is the mention of "golf fall out" a typo? Or is there some expectation that the helicopter needs to carry a golf ball that is not otherwise mentioned?

Answer: There is no golf ball involved in this event the rules have been updates as of Sept. 23.
