Re: Protein Modeling C

Okay, let's say you want to represent two amino acids. It would look something like this (pardon the makeshift drawing): http://i1164.photobucket.com/albums/q575/EASTstroudsburg13/2cmtoober.jpg?t=1414174349 So for a two-amino acid chain, you would need 2 cm of Toober, since you have one amino acid ...

Re: Forensics C

yup we skipped 30 questions
Yeah, I have no idea how many we left blank. We didn't have enough time to make sense of our giant list of answers at the end, so we ended up having to choose our final suspect essentially fifty-fifty from the two names that showed up most often. We ended up getting 7th.

Re: Protein Modeling C

The raw scores are out! We got 11th :( failed the test Yeah, the test killed us too (I wouldn't say we failed it – we got 23/30 – but we definitely should have done better). I think the PCR question was probably where we lost the most points; if I recall our answer correctly, we only got one point ...

Re: Protein Modeling C

Does anyone know if and when MSOE is going to post the raw scores on their website and the grading rubrics?
It should be later this week.

Re: Experimental Design B/C

Those ideas might be better incorporated if the event was designed so that competitors had to complete an experiment before competition. At competition the teams could turn in a lab report and take a test on experimental design and famous experiments. A huge problem with this set-up would be possib...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

Phenyl: what would you think of (in addition to your interpretation of NC's event) asking questions about "landmark" experiments in various fields? idk, just brainstorming. Eh, I feel like that would require students to know details of too many different experiments. I like the idea of using the ac...

Re: Chem Lab C

What was the lab for NY? Teams were given a bunch of stickers with names of colleges on them, and a sort of periodic table-shaped grid. Based on various information they were given about the colleges (size, location, degrees offered, etc), they were supposed to arrange the stickers into a "periodic...

Re: National Results Discussion

Thoughts on the national results? I think everyone did a great job :D I was not suprised when Solon won in both B and C divisions, and very suprised PJG and WM didn't place top ten. Gelinas was a surprise, but I don't think Ward Melville has ever been top ten. We tend to treat Nats like a reward fo...

Re: Chem Lab C

:D I think you just made my day! <3 Is periodicity still going to be there, or will that rotate to something harder too? After hearing about the lab portion at NY states this year, I hope that either periodicity rotates out, supervisors think of less bizarre periodicity labs, or they just stop tryi...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

I may be remembering incorrectly, but I think someone said that in NC, they tell you the experiment instead of giving you a topic? Can anyone from NC clarify that? In NC they've tried this different setup (just this year for regionals) where teams are given stations and each one has scenarios and a...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

I disagree about the time. We had no trouble doing the experiment and write-up it one hour. In fact, we finished with almost 20 minutes left, AND we had only two of us actually doing 95% of the writing (the other person carried out the experiment and wrote our names on the papers). Is this what you...

Re: Protein Modeling C

True. I always though of Food Science replacing Protein since they're both more hands-on. Nobody's referring to MagLev replacing Protein, though. :roll: Heh, I keep forgetting that MagLev wasn't already a "real" event. It was a NYS trial (meaning that it counted toward our score at Regionals and St...
