Re: Chem Lab C

Hey guys! So this is my first year in division C, but I've competed in division B for 4 years. The national website doesn't have good information on this event, does anyone have any website suggestions or books I could get to study? Thanks!

Re: Food Science B

So at States last year in Michigan, they wanted us to take the density of flour. Does anyone know how to do that? They gave us some flours, and a scale. We were pretty stumped. Density of anything is mass over volume. For example water is 1 gram per milliliter (1 g/ml) which is a standard of densit...

Re: Crime Busters B

At my regional tournament this year, they gave us 6 hairs, and didn't give us a microscope. Any tips for IDing cat, dog and human hair just by the looks? Also, the magnifying glass we had wasn't strong enough to see any medulas. No microscope? Huh. I didn't do hairs, but you probably should have br...

Re: Road Scholar B

So, when I measure distance from one city to the next, how do I know where at the city to end/put my measuring device? It never says where, just measure the distance between these two cities... I don't know where to measure. Any help?

Re: Forestry B/C

Has anyone come across any good sites with a bunch of labeled pictures of leaves? I'm still having a hard time with identification. Leaves aren't sticking as well as birds did!! So I was wondering if anyone had any tricks or sites they would be willing to share? Our first competition is in less then...

Re: Science Crime Busters B

Does anyone have any good websites for diagrams of fibers, hairs, and blood stains? Or a chart describing each plastic? I'm new to this event and I think my coach wants me to compete. Our first competition is next weekend, I need as much help and things to study as I can get!!! :geek:

Re: Forestry B/C

Is is OK for states to put a bunch of trees on the state list that aren't on the national list? The rules say "All questions will be restricted to specimens on the Official National Tree List." Just wondering because the Michigan list has about 20 extra trees that aren't on the national l...
