Re: How to motivate your team

Pretty straightforward: How do I motivate or help motivate a team (or 6 teams, depends) that doesn't want to be motivated? I'm afraid a lot of people, especially upperclassmen, just don't really try or care anymore due to the fact that "we aren't making nationals anyway" and having "other prioritie...

Making Tryout Tests

Over the past years, my school has almost completely decided our team A based on time availability, competitor choice (competitors rank the events by personal preference), and previous results (regionals of previous years).

There's something great and wonderful about being back, something missing that I found again here. Let's hope it stays. So: this is an re-introduction post for myself. I hope I wo...

Re: Green Generation B/C

Iron is a limiting nutrient in the ocean, so adding it will cause phytoplankton to grow quickly (bloom). They'll photosynthesize and remove CO2 from the atmosphere that way. The bad part comes from when all the algae die and cause hypoxia instead.
