Re: Ecology B/C

I’m actually really fed up about this event in general; even the best of the tests (MIT, Golden Gate) end up being nothing more than fact recall when there’s so much opportunity for more ... if I end up supervising for Water Quality next year, I’d hope to include more case studies that involve deep...

Re: Ecology B/C

The Kansas City Regionals exams -- both B and C divisions -- have been uploaded on the Test Exchange!

I wrote the exams, so comment here with any questions about the test, and I'll answer them.

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Does anyone know if we will need to make formulas with isostasy to calculate density/weight etc of continental crusts or anything of the sort? also, if anyone has info on "f. Continental drift's role on opening and closure of ocean gateways and land-bridges, with specific reference to ocean ci...

Re: Dynamic Planet B/C

Thank you pettywap and knottingpurple! I admittedly have been stalking the DP forums hahah what fun (read: I'm crying) and noticed someone else posted a question similar to mine. Seeing how no one responded, I was hopping if I prodded some more, a knowledgeable one would enlighten us all. Is there ...

Re: Water Quality B/C

There's surely a difficulty level difference between the two divisions though, right? I certainly didn't know everything on the states test last year, although I studied everything on the Water Quality disk. This event seems very open-ended. I just need someplace to learn more. If that makes sense....

During my time participating in Science Olympiad, I have worked on creating what I think would be the perfect event. I would like to push for this event to enter the official Science Olympiad scene this year if possible. Event supervisors and tournament directors, I would love to get your feedback o...

Re: Science Olympiad 2012

Will Water Quality still be on freshwater next year, or will it switch to estuaries? I understand that it will rotate between these two and oceanography, but does it switch every year or every two years? The BMIs (macroinvertebrates) and nuisance species that we have to identify live in FRESHWATER ...

Re: Water Quality B/C

Does anyone know how to tell the difference between midge larvae and blood midge larvae? I'm not even sure if I understand what a blood midge even is. Is a blood midge just a midge in the family of Ceratopogonidae? If preserved, a blood midge will eventually loose its color and it will be basically...

Re: Preliminary:Water Quality

How similar is this to Ecology? Just wondering. A lot of the questions will probably pertain to the ecology of estuaries. Quizbowl, it is important to note that the subject of water quality is not limited to estuaries or even the ecology of estuaries. Water quality is an important topic in discussi...

Re: 2011-2012 Events

On the event rotation page, it states, "projected event rotation schedules from each Committee Chair will no longer be posted for public view". Last year, the events were only posted when they became official, around June 4. Blazer, I am referring to the list that was posted around June 4...

Re: 2011-2012 Events

@Chalker
When will the tentative list of events for next year (2011-2012) be posted on the SO website for public viewing? (By this, I am referring to the table that is normally posted under the "Event Rotation" tab on the soinc.org website.) Thanks.

Re: Ecology B/C

Somebody please explain the local aspect to the Regional and State tests. I do not understand it. Do we need to learn about our native biomes?
