I'd love to start/be on a real-work science/math geek team!

hi ya team mate  Grin 

Hello team mate!  Cheesy  Now we just need a team name...  that's the hard part.  There's so much of math/science that narrowing down a name could be tough.

Team Hexaflexagons
The Nerd Herd (though that would also be Chuck fandom)
[error, cannot divide by zero]
Team Erlenmeyer
The Bunsen Burners
Who Ate the Pi?
Team Event Horizon
Cadaver Nice Day

...I just don't know!  My brain is not firing on all cylinders right now, I'll give it more thought.  Suggestions are welcome!

Your suggestions are great :-) Trying to come up with something that covers all science and maths topics from  the big bang, through dinosaurs to flight, and from higgs bosons to the whole universe - all of maths, engineering, physics, chem, bio, earth science... All summed up in a couple of words? Tough call... I'll ponder on it too

Oh my GOSH!! This is epic - I cannot wait to participate in this!!

I would love to place a holder for team captain on a Fantasy-themed team. I think that's broad enough to be awesome. Tongue

I can't seem to think of a proper name right now, though. Any suggestions?

SlideRulers

ahaha, I like the Rulers.  You could play with the double meaning.  Math Rulers or something.

This sounds like something I think I'd want to take a swap hiatus for!
 Grin Grin Grin

I do have a question that I'm sure has been asked and answered several times, but I'm getting confused as I read the thread.
Not that what's being said in the thread is confusing....But being a silentblair of very little brain am getting tricked up and overthinking.....

Let's say I'm on a Star Trek team, for example.
Can I, in order to complete a challenge/category, craft something pertaining to physics?

As I understand it teams can bond together uniting in a common theme and then craft any type nerd-esque item or inspiration.

Am I correct?

I'm trying to wrap my tiny mind around it also; if one joins a team, does one have to only craft for that team or can one sometimes go rogue/ninja and craft outside of the team effort?

Hi Silentblair.  Let's see if I can help.  (I'm fluent in pinkleoese, and am sometimes good at translating.)  

Let's pretend you are on Team Star Trek.  As a member of Team Trek you can totally craft something related to Physics.  Or Doctor Who.  Or Harry Potter.  The main goal is to CRAFT something that fits the prompt.  Now a prompt is just something to inspire you, and get those creative juices flowing.  It can be something like this...

Star Trek Example Prompt:  (Which can be done by any team.  This is just the first example that occurred to me!)
In Starfleet, officer jobs are traditionally denoted by the colors the officers wear.  Uniforms are red for command, gold for engineering, and blue for science & medical.  Craft something red, gold, or blue in color.  


Now, to fulfill that prompt you could do many things.  You could crochet a red afghan.  You could mod podge together a gold paper crown for your friend's birthday party, that is a replica of a crown in your favorite fantasy novel.  Or could make a blue pixilated quilt of Mr. Spock.

Making the red afghan would get you the base amount of points for a project.  The gold crown would get you bonus points for making something from the Nerdyverse (your favorite fantasy novel).  Making the quilt of Mr. Spock would get you EXTRA points, because it fulfilled the prompt, had to do with the Nerdyverse, AND it had to do with your team.  

Does that help?

Hmmm, Sliderule (or some incarnation of it) is really calling to me.  It is pertinant, and also has a very nerdy association.  Of course, I could go super nerd very unimaginatively...

"Team Science and Math"

...but I can't do that.  I wonder if I could make an acronym?  A nerdy acronym would be, like, nerd to the third power.  *ponders*
