Re: Awesomely Run Event Stories

We had this guy during the heredity regs session just in the middle of the session turn on some rock music, plugged in his earbuds, and start dancing and air guitaring in the middle of the room. For a good 30 minutes, while a bunch of middle schoolers were crying over dihybrid crosses and solving a...

Re: MIT Invitational

Has anyone heard anything at all about next year's date? I emailed a few weeks ago but haven't heard back. Stephen Tang, who graduated but has run the invite the past three years, says he believes the plan is to stay on the same weekend (so that would be 1/20/18). I believe Katie Shade (New Trier a...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

That's what I'm talking about. It was ~2 minutes for 2 teams (though a lot more got 2 teams, I figure a lot of schools dropped) and ~40 minutes until they closed registration. It is not the case that a lot of schools dropped - we (by which I mean Science Olympiad at MIT) "close" confirmed registrat...

Re: MIT Invitational

MIT seems to be messing with stuff (luckily I saved a copy of the scores) Any idea what they are doing? No idea. If anyone needs to look at the scores urgently, there's a copy on our team website news post. Stephen Tang asked me to pass on the message that the reason for the display issues was that...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

...which means that either I have a really good memory, or I unconsciously stalk people :? Speaking of unconsciously stalking, I now know a handful of scioly users' real names from a mix of last year's Nationals and SO related facebook pages.

Re: MIT Invitational

Since Luo seems to have disappeared I'm sorry for my absence. I'm not directly involved with the tournament this year, so I'm not necessarily immediately in the loop when the website is updated or decisions are made. Stephen and Katie are doing an excellent job. Wishing you all a happy new year, an...
