DescriptionKind of a throwback activity to an older time when affordable pocket calculators didn't exist.
BasicsI think it would be a math race. Solve a number of problems using the slide rule as fast as possible.
Why is this something we want to do?Old school tech is fun and it will give everyone a chance to make fun of the old guys who've actually used a slide rule. Conversely, the old guys will get to show everyone else how to use a slide rule.
