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...

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...

...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. Somewhat related, would it be weird to friend scioly.org...

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...

Re: MIT Invitational 2017

I'm amazed to report that as of 1:40 PM ET today, registration for the MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament is closed. We were absolutely astounded by the deluge of interest we received immediately upon registration opening, and all confirmed spots in the invitational were filled in less tha...

Re: MIT Invitational 2016

I'm pleased to announce that the 3rd annual MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament will be held at MIT on Saturday, January 21, 2017. (That is, if the world hasn't ended by then - a new president will have been inaugurated the previous day!)
