Re: Ecology B/C

The booklet for nats reads:

"Ecology (C)
Teams will work at stations that display a variety of earth-science materials and related earth-science questions. (Earth's Fresh Waters)"

Re: Fossils B/C

Well, in recrystallization, the fossil would have been replaced with crystalline minerals. Look for the shiny stuff. Replacement is essentially just a mineral process. That is what you'd go with if any specific replacement method didn't fit. Premineralization makes internal molds of the organism sp...

Re: Texas 2010

Wow all this fundraising talk made me realize how spoiled beckdorff is :/ Our PTA provides for quite a bit, parents donate a lot too, and we only do fundraising once a year.
