Re: Remote Sensing C

That site can be helpful for starting to interpret satellite images. However, from my experience, satellite images make up around 20-30% of the tests. You should later try the NASA website and research the major satellites and satellite programs. Wow only 20-30%? I thought almost the entire test wa...

Re: Remote Sensing C

Hey i was wondering if there are any websites that might help me study being that i was kinda thrown in this event. I found this website, http://www.ebsinstitute.com/rs.ebs.html, that is also a pretty good introduction to remote sensing. It may be a bit elementary, but I thought the activities help...

Re: Road Scholar B

Also, if I remember correctly, just last year in 2011 they introduced a satellite/aerial image part to Road Scholar, which is basically what the Remote Sensing test is. However, I never saw any of those show up at the actual event, and I don't know if they kept that addition for this year.

Re: Road Scholar B

That's true. I'm sure there's way more analysis you could do with topographic maps that could be in a Div. C event, or they could just make the test longer :P But yeah, Remote Sensing is a pretty good event to do after Road Scholar.

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

There was an official clarification issued on November 9th for the question about the ice water. It will only be added to the internal beaker. To your second question, to my understanding the closest to your second question is that you can combine the four plots onto one graph. Otherwise points sho...

Re: Road Scholar B

Road Scholar was definitely my fav event, and it's awesome how it's been an event every year for almost the entire history of Science Olympiad. They need a Div. C version of this!!!!

Re: Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C

This may seem like a stupid question, but...

For the ice water bonus, will the ice water be added to both your team's internal beaker and external beaker?

Also, is it still possible to receive the maximum 10 points for the Plot Score if you make less than 4 graphs/plots?
