Students will use a variety of everyday, inexpensive materials including mousetraps, compact discs, rubber bands, toothpicks, soda straws, etc. to build their devices such as catapult, mousetrap car, bridge building, soda straw arm to accomplish specific tasks. Schools must qualify in their AEA regional competition in order to compete in the State Physics Competition. See State Competitions section of the Rules for details on the school team and event team regional winners who are eligible to compete in the State Competition. If there is no regional competition in an AEA region, two schools per AEA region may compete at the State Competition with a maximum of 5 event teams for each school. If there is no regional competition in your AEA, contact your AEA science consultant to let him/her know that you are interested in participating in the State Competition. You may also want to contact a neighboring AEA to determine if it is possible to compete in their regional competition. Coordinators for regional competitions must provide a list of their teams that qualify for the State Competition no later than April 12, 2013 to Lawrence.Escalada@uni.edu. AEA science consultants who do not have regional competitions in their AEA should also provide a list of teams who may participate in the State Competition. All teams that compete in the State Competition must complete and submit a registration form with payment.
