Re: SO tryouts?

Although an extra coach or two could be helpful, you don't really need them to do well at Scio. Centerville (this year's winner) may have about twenty coaches, but Solon (3rd) only has one, and LASA (my school, 7th) has one coach and a few mentors. All of our mentors used to do Scio in highschool an...

Re: Physics Lab B/C

We actually used the exact same thought process as you nejanimb, and eventually justified it by saying that the average of the squares is less than the square of the averages, and the difference in wind speeds is great enough to maybe account for the difference between 6 and 8, but I think there's a...

Re: SO tryouts?

We do it the same way as Deeisenberg, and bring everyone and don't stack anything at invitationals. Before regionals, we have a test off and use that and invitational results to figure out the best team for regionals, though we still bring everyone else and if some one beats the A-Team, we usually m...

I don't remember him actually saying anything about that, but i don't know why they wouldn't put it up this year.

Re: Picture This C

They were way easier this year. I was disappointed.
The ones I remember are:
epicenter
renewable resource
coprolite
pendulum
epidemiology
rocket

We got 21.

Re: Astronomy C

There wasn't an especially strong focus on anything this year, though there was some ds9 software analysis again, and the normal questions you would expect about the DSOs and simple math. The test was a little different this year, as they had one more supervisor than before. It was also really hard,...

Re: Texas 2010

I'm pretty sure there will be no "outstanding" coach award. For instance, which coach would be better: A) The coach that wins first every year but is overly harsh on their students or B) The coach that, despite not placing often, is liked by their students and teaches them well? I don't think I've ...
