tgentry wrote:I see your point here. While the topic of the experiment clearly seems to be bio-mutation, which on the surface seems to be out of the reach of a middle schooler, it's not being approached at a level that would be out of their grasp (like say an advanced report on radioactivity's effect on chromosomes or proteins). Similarly there could be advanced levels of light or plant growth that would be too advanced for middle schoolers, and thus against the rules. OK, you've convinced me.



I'm not I'm following exactly what you've been convinced of but as someone who is a scientist the initial rejection was correct. Part of the requirements for funding agencies and departments is outreach into the community and as a result I have spent a fair amount of time coordinating and presenting for science clubs in our local area.

Any sort of mutation project is well beyond the reach of middle schoolers and junior high even into high school. What isn't beyond middle schoolers is that if you pour bleach on animals they die. The shirt is a poorly shoehorned attempt at a TMNT reference which has absolutely no basis in the theme.

With all of the controversy regarding ethical use of animals, there is no possibility even at the middle school level that kids are taking animals in the attempt to "do stuff to them." It's not responsible and it's not something that should be profited off of as a joke.

It's irresponsible and unethical and the fact that it would be allowed is personally insulting especially given the great lengths that everyone in science from the top down has to go through to ensure that animals are used in responsible ways.

Plus the rules state: "Keep it at a level you would expect walking into a grade school gym to judge a kid's experiment."

I know I'm probably coming across as a crotchety old man, but it does bother me a bit that there are some who follow the rules and there are those who sidestep them without any repercussions.
I'm really not crotchety, although I probably am a bit older than many on here.



God knows, I make every attempt to follow the derby theme to the letter, to avoid the rejectinator. In this case, it's very difficult for me to see how it's off topic. We have characters at a Science Fair. The name of the derby is "Science Fair". I don't know how much more on target I could get. *shrug* That's how I look at it. But as far as woot's saving grace goes, the reasoning was along the lines of: if a middle schooler approached a experiment with an unsophisticated childlike mindset, then you're in compliance. That's woot speaking. There ya go. Now I'm going outside to smell flowers or something.

Actually there are only 6 colors in the spectrum. Like little Pluto, Indigo has been ruled out as a color, and no longer exists in the spectrum.

None of the schools I went to allowed any live animals to be used in science fair projects.

The Dino shirt did submit gradients, but then he removed it, converted to halftones, and resubmitted.



M'kay,
Thanks, I'm usually more diligent about rules. I'll try again, l8r.

Regardless of whether this fits the category or not, it's still just another bland, cutesy ramyb entry that will most likely get much more votes than it deserves.

why is the fire on the match white when you are uusing great colors for it. It would be like "opposite Balance?"

Re: LEGO PAIN EXPERIMENT!



i liked this in the pre derby thread, the idea is funny, and definitely true. now that you added the guys in different colors, i think i like them more than the feet. either way i would choose one other the other, to me it seems to crowded right now, and i think simple is better for this one. great idea though, you got my vote for my nephews! =)

I think that goes without saying.

I see the point that a child may try to mutate turtles using bleach, and see it as scientific. However, only a developmentally deficient middle schooler would actually see this as reasonable. A six year old might, but not an 11 year old.

I have to agree that this derby is generally disappointing so far, but that doesn't excuse this entry either. You can dress it up as "a child's view of science" all you want, it's still just a Sirius GPP TMNT reference.

in additive light you can use 3 colors -red, green, blue (which is what computers and tv's use. subtractive light(CMYK) is a bit different, however if you are breaking light through a prism, you will get 7 main color -red-orange-yesllow-green-bue-indigo-violet, not to mention the variety of colors in between.

When I first saw this, I thought it was the top climbing back to its rightful place on the bottle, maybe if there had been an open sleeve of the candies in front of the bottle it would be better.
