Re: Pennsylvania 2019

I drank 6 cans of mountain dew and pepsi, not 6 of each, and am going to go for 7 this year. The night before nats last year I drank 30 cans of pepsi, as well as 10 shots of espresso a few hours before my first event. I think my heart skipped a few beats while I was winding rubber during wright stu...

reverse wrote:According to the 2019 webinar, the topic for Astronomy next year is going to be galaxies again since galaxies require background knowledge of all other subjects in astronomy. I don't know if they're going to go through with this though, any ideas?

It will almost certainly be galaxies again.

Re: Science Olympiad Events 2019-2020

Will Ornithology be a binder event? In the previous rules competitors seem to have been allowed a published field guide. However, given the other events in the rotation and how it's switching in for Herp, can it be safely assumed that it will be a binder event? I'm not an official source, but odds ...

Re: Science Olympiad Events 2019-2020

Will fossils still likely be a Division C event for 2019-2020 and also will protein modeling continue as an event? If so when will the details come out for it? Fossils and Protein Modeling will both likely be events next year. Some details about all the events will leak/be released over the course ...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

I wish people posted more in Awesomely Run Events Stories; in my opinion, positively reinforcing awesome event supervising is probably more useful than punishing people who are often just doing their best.

Re: Solar System B

I think Solar System is a hard event to write a test for, especially when you don't have any experience in it. When I competed in Solar System, the first test I saw that wasn't very short/easy or off-topic was at Nationals, where the event supervisor, Dusty Schroeder, was pretty much an expert in t...

Re: Astronomy C

I've noticed that there seem to be two different equations used to calculate recessional velocity from redshift. The more commonly used one, v = Z*c, works fine for relatively close objects, but creates a problem for objects with redshifts > 1. The equation is problematic because it implies that we...

Re: Solar System B

But, I see things related to eclipses on almost all SS tests, so I would study up on that. You should learn about liberation, tides, and resonance, even though it doesn't really say it in the rules. Every now and then I see things such as "What was 2007 OR10 nicknamed", but not that often...
