The scenario topics below will be featured in the multiple choice portion of the 2024 competition. Each team will be assigned a combination of four scenario topics with ten questions each for a total of 40 questions.
Moving in Space: Your team will learn the basics of object motion in space and the physics behind movement.
Resource Management in a New World: Your team will use a combination of models to forecast how a new society can manage its resources, compare different methods for implementing sustainable energy sources, and analyze how to distribute resources to various parts of the society.
Renewable Energy to Power a New World: Your team will explore the energy needs of households and facilities to form a foundation for designing and implementing solitons that will optimize both solar and wind power systems and enhance the efficient and reliable generation of clean energy.
Powered Flight as a Tool for a New World: Your team will use information that exists with what needs to be developed to envision different/new design options to mitigate fossil fuel consumption and carbon emissions by the airline industry. Your team also will learn how powered flight based on fossil fuels might still have a place in an overall transition to a sustainable powered flight future.
Powering Systems to make Vacations on the Moon a reality: Your team will explore environmentally friendly technology to power transportation in a new world, such as photovoltaics which uses the unique properties of semiconductors to directly convert solar radiation into electricity.
Gravity, Air, and other Challenges of a Different World : Teams will consider manufacturing materials, the effect of gravity - and food, water, and air supplies, when developing a settlement in a new world.
One-page overviews of each of the scenario topics with web links are available in the coach online account, once the coach has completed TEAMS registration.
