Re: Science Olympiad at MIT Invitational 2019

Disease Detectives - the test was unlike any other Disease test I've taken before, and quite difficult as well. I'm impressed with how the test writer managed to ask questions on stuff that doesn't show up on other tests at all. Scores were pretty low for a Disease test for this event. Coming out o...

Re: Solar System B

Oh ok thanks. Do I need to know stuff like how bigor long a feature is? Having a rough idea of the scale, what features are bigger/smaller than others, etc. can be useful. Generally, only focus on the size if that's what makes the feature significant. Most features are interesting for reasons other...

Re: Solar System B

Oh ok. I still don’t know how in depth do I have to study. So in NASA’s website, https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/moons/earths-moon/in-depth/#formation_otp, the part of formation of the moon is only a paragraph long. But in Wikipedia, https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Origin_of_the_Moon, it is much more ...

Re: Solar System B

Ok thanks. I have any question. How deep do I have to study? Participants may be asked to identify geologic surface features and internal structures of the objects listed below as they appear on diagrams, maps, or images. Each of them must have a lot of geologic surface features so do I need to lea...
