This event contains only one round, that is, hitting the pyramid.
The system should have a minimum of 10 steps.
A step is an action that results in another action and continues on to the final aim. Each step should have energy conversion from one form to another.
Parallel steps will be awarded more marks. A parallel step is an action which initiates two or more steps at the same time.
There should be at least four different energy conversions (eg. potential to kinetic, electrical to mechanical etc.) and the rest of the contraptions (steps) can be of any type.
Participants can start the chain reaction automatically or manually.
Participants are allowed to make a maximum of 4 checkpoints in their machine according to their convenience, but marks will be deducted accordingly.
Participants are allowed to use fire and water in their contraption system. Points will be awarded accordingly.
Participants will be provided with a power supply of 230 V-50 Hz, if needed.
At the end, participants are required to hit a pyramid made up of 10 disposable cups. Points will be awarded according to the number of fallen cups.
