The team will design, construct, calibrate, and shoot a device capable of launching a ball into a target area, and collect data to develop a series of graphs relating launch configuration to target distance and height.
High Impact Particle Protection Goggles must be worn during building, testing and launching. See www.soinc.org/general /protection
Another attribute to be considered is Impact Protection. Protective eyewear bearing the mark "Z87" provides basic impact protection. Devices that meet the "High Impact" specifications of ANSI Z87.1-2003 are identified by the mark "Z87+".
High Impact protection is indicated when there may be a high inertia particle hazard (high mass or velocity). This will be specified in the rules by preceding the type of protective eyewear above with the words "High Impact". e.g. High Impact Particle Protection Goggles
Event supervisors may disqualify any apparatus that is operated in an unsafe manner.
The center of the target areas will be placed between 2 and 8 meters for Division B and 2 and 10 meters for Division C from the front of the launching area in 1 m intervals for Regional, ½ m intervals for State, and 10 cm intervals for National)
The centers of the two targets must be separated by at least 2 meters.
The target areas will be at two different levels with the higher target being nearer to the launch area.
If the announced target area is the far target but the projectile hits the nearer target, the score will be a straight line measured distance between the impact location and the center of the far target.
