TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 11 The Central Challenge

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 12 The Central Challenge Intent of the Challenge: Design and build a structure made using only materials from a list. Approved materials do not include natural wood or products made from natural wood. Test its strength by placing weight upon it at the Tournament and completing impacts. Scoring based on the ratio of the weight of the Structure to the “total weight held”. “Total weight held” = actual weight held + bonus for each successful RAM impact

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 13 The Central Challenge Intent of the Challenge (cont’d): A Story with an unexpected event or twist. A prop or costume using only the same material types used in the Structure.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 14 The Central Challenge Structure Specifications:  Must be only from approved materials.  Height: At least 7.5 in. and no more than 9 in.  Weight: total weight of the structure must not exceed 175 grams ( ~ 6.15 ounces)  Must fit on the Structure Tester and have an opening the entire height of the Structure that accepts a circular column with a 2.0 in. (5.1 cm) outside diameter column.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 15 The Central Challenge Structure Specifications – (cont’d):  Non-acceptable substances include natural wood and materials made from wood (even partially).  Teams must use at least the number of different types of materials specified for the teams competitive level [Elem = 3, Middle = 4, Secondary = 5]  Glue counts as one of the materials. Teams may use more than one type of Glue (incl. 2-part epoxy, Gorilla Glue, super glue, wood glue, hot glue & glue using an accelerant).  Glue: any commercially available adhesive material capable of creating a permanent bond (incl. 2-part epoxy, Gorilla Glue, super glue, wood glue, hot glue & glue using an accelerant).

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 16 Special Procedures The structure must be made entirely of materials listed below. i.Elementary level teams must use at least three (3) materials ii.Middle level teams must use at least four (4) materials iii.Secondary/college/university level teams must use at least five (5) materials Only materials from the Structure Materials List (follows) may be used.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 17 Structure Material List (pg. 3) Aluminum Foil Bamboo Copper Wire Cork Corrugated CardboardDuct Tape Glue Hook-&-Loop fastener Monofilament Fishing Line Newsprint Latex-Free or Mylar BalloonsLatex-Free Rubber Bands Pasta (commercial, not homemade) Plastic Toothpicks Plastic Drinking/Stirring Straws Plastic Trash BagsPlaying Cards Twist Ties CANNOT Natural wood & products made from natural wood CANNOT be used in the Structure or in the scored prop/costume

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 18 All forms of a material count as a single material type. All forms of a material don’t need to be the same – can differ in size, shape, thickness, other characteristics, and color (be careful if wire is colored/coated).

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 19 Copper Wire: 16 gauge or smaller single strand (wire gets smaller as gauge increases), so look for between 16 and 30 gauge. Or plastic or paper covered twist ties FISHING LINE AND WIRE (Examples, not all inclusive) Monofilament Fishing Line : Any single–strand non- metallic fishing line of any weight or diameter.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 20 M Masking and painter’s tapes are paper backed – not allowed Duct tape is typically polyethylene coated with threads or gauze embedded. TAPES (Examples, not all inclusive) Clear plastic, masking & painter’s Duct tape

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 21 Glues/Adhesives (Examples, not all-inclusive) Hot glues allowed “Expanding” foams and similar products are not permitted

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 23 Plastic - OK Wood - No Toothpicks Bamboo - OK

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 24 Trash Bags Must be trash / garbage bags -- not lunch, sandwich, general storage, etc. Size: 33 gallon or less Black or white

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 25 Cardboard <=3/16” thick, with a single accordion fold - OK Corrugated rolls - No Cardboard

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 26 Beware – some jumbo straws found in drink shops exceed ¼” diameter – not allowed Straws

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 27 Ordinary Newspaper - OK Glossy publications - No Newsprint

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 28 Balloons and Rubber Bands Must be latex free and packaging must be provided. Mylar balloons are acceptable. Most balloons sold in hobby stores, Target & Walmart, and supermarkets are not latex free. Hospital gift stores often have latex free balloons. Rubber band sizes: 1/32” to 1/8 ” Loop Lengths: 1” to 6 “ or 2” to 12”

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 29 The Central Challenge Structure Specifications – (cont’d): When the structure is checked in and when it is placed for testing it must be a single unit. Multiple free-standing pieces placed on the tester are not allowed. Must fit  Completely on Tester Base  Around Safety Pole  Rest Only on Tester Base Contacts only top surface of the Tester Base and the bottom surface of the Pressure Board. May touch the safety pole.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 30 The Central Challenge Designing and Building the Structure: Design a structure that holds weight and takes a torsional impact load from the RAM.  Teams are encouraged to build and test structures prior to the tournament date. Cannot use any technology that designs, creates, or aids in testing Structure. Team members must do all tooling and/or shaping of the Structure. Jigs must be team created. (What is a jig?)

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 31 The Central Challenge Once 8-minute presentation time begins, the team may place structure on tester base and over safety pole and start weight placement at any time. After pressure board is placed, the team must deliver a RAM impact to a team selected corner of the pressure board. For scoring purposes a RAM impact is the act of using the RAM impact device to strike/apply a force to a corner of the pressure board. RAM impact device will be tournament provided.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 32 RAM Impacts Only team members operating the RAM may be inside the safety line. The team will place the RAM so that while at rest, its impacting face squarely contacts a marked corner. After a successful RAM impact, a Bonus Card will be placed on the weight stack. No weights under the Bonus Cards may be removed. Weights added after the latest Bonus Card may be removed.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 33 Weight Held Measurement: Each time a total of 45 or more pounds (i.e., 45 to 85#) is added to the weight stack, the team must deliver another RAM impact before adding more weight. Weight placement appraiser will notify teams if RAM impact done improperly. Team must repeat until successful. Weight Placement Appraiser will note weight held by the structure and number of RAM impacts completed. Total Weight Held: sum of weight successfully placed and a 50# bonus for each RAM impact completed. Weight Held Ratio = Total Weight Held (in Pounds) ÷ the Structure’s weight (in grams, to the nearest 0.1)

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 34 The Central Challenge To Qualify For Scoring: Structure must meet Physical Specifications If not brought into compliance, Weight Held = 0 Teams not making a “good faith” effort to present a Qualifying Structure for testing may present at tournament but will not advance to next level. Points for:  Official Weight Held Ratio  How creatively multiple materials included and used in the structure.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 35 Teams must produce a Bill of Materials (BOM) listing all of the materials used in building the Structure Examples, and/or packaging of each material used must be presented with the BOM The Bill of Materials is in addition to the completed Expense Form BOM must be provided to qualify for score for Structure and Prop/Costume consistency Bill of Materials

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 36 The team will create and present a Story that has an unexpected twist or surprising changed. The twist should contain an element of surprise for the Appraisers. The Central Challenge - Story

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 37 The team will build a prop or costume made from only the same material types used in their structure They must include all of the same material types used in their Structure They may use only the material types used Only one prop or costume must be from same material types used in the structure Teams will receive points if they used all and only the same material types and for creativity and workmanship. The Central Challenge - Prop

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 38 General Clarification #2 October 15, 2012 In the Challenge, A.5.b should read: “The Weight Placement Appraiser will inform the team each time a RAM Impact is required. The team will then remove the RAM from the RAM Box and place it next to the Tester.”

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 39 General Clarification #3 November 1, 2012 In the Challenge, A.5 should read: The Tournament Director will provide the Ram for use at the tournament. (See Section D.4 for a diagram of the Ram.) The Team does NOT bring, and cannot use, its own Ram at the tournament. For the purpose of this Challenge, a Ram Impact is the act of striking a marked corner of the Pressure Board with the Ram. Each Ram Impact will be delivered by a team member. The Ram has been designed to deliver a calibrated impact to the Pressure Board when operated as directed. At all tournament levels the weight of the Ram swinging head must be 2.2 pounds (1kg) plus or minus 5%. When a Ram Impact is required, it will be performed in the following manner:

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 40 General Clarification #4 November 1, 2012 In the Challenge, A.5.d should read: The team will place the Ram so that while at rest, its impacting face squarely contacts (touches) a marked corner (team choice) of the Pressure Board. The Ram must impact the Pressure Board in an impact zone that extends from a corner to 2in (5.1cm) from the corner. This area will be clearly marked on the side of the Pressure Board at all 8 corners.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 41 Corner designations and impact zones will likely vary between tournaments/regions. Check with your RCM.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 42 General Clarification #5 November 26, 2012 In the Challenge, A.3.a.ii, Latex-Free Balloons should read: Latex- Free Balloons: Commercially available non-porous mylar or plastic balloons capable of being inflated. (Original packaging must be provided.) Also, in the Challenge A.3.a.ii, Latex-Free Rubber Bands should read: Latex-Free Rubber Bands – Thickness/Width: 1/32in to 1/8in (0.75mm to 3.0mm); Loop Length: 1in – 6in (25 mm – 150mm) or 2in – 12in (50mm – 300mm) opened loop length: A commercially available continuous loop of synthetic rubber, used to hold items together. (Original packaging must be provided.) And also, in the Challenge, A.3.a.ii, Pasta should read: Pasta: A commercially available food product. Examples would include spaghetti, lasagna, fettuccini, macaroni, and noodles. Home-made pastas are not acceptable.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 43 Commercially available pasta, any style, cooked or uncooked. Home-made pasta is not allowable.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 44 General Clarification #6 #6 January 8, 2013 In the Challenge A.5.g should read: The Ram may not be touched by anything or anyone after it is released, until it has stopped impacting the Pressure Board. Additionally in the Challenge A.5.i.iv should read: Ram is touched by anything or anybody after released before it has stopped impacting the Pressure Board.

TW IST–O–RAMA Colorado Extreme Creativity Slide 45 Team Choice Elements
