Re: SMART QUESTIONS - STUPID ANSWERS

Bipolar. A psychiatrist named after this thing narrates a novel in which he abets the title character in his globetrotting spree of violent acts, culminating in the title character's imprisonment for murdering Rita. That novel is Moravagine by Blaise Cendrars. The "fairy tales" of this thi...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Just for clarification, can we put the pennies on the craft after it has been started? Like after substantial lift has been achieved (no thrust) Also what skirts are you guys using? my hovercraft can barely lift itself with a 8.4 NiMH pack :/ I have no problem at all lifting a 2+kg craft with no sk...

Re: Anatomy and Physiology B/C

Since no one has posted recently, I'll just ask a question... Define lung compliance and 2 factors that affect it. Lung compliance is the lung's ability to stretch and expand. Two factors that affect it are fibrosis and pulmonary hypertension. Fibrosis is when the tissue around the alveolar sacs th...

Re: Anatomy & Physiology B/C

Hi, Jumping into the conversation, I think the best place to start would be with the powerpoints on soinc.org. They provide a good introduction, and will give you something to go off once you start reading through textbooks. Also, videos are really helpful if you don't quite understand a process, et...

Re: Does anyone do science bowl or bio olympiad?

Just curious. How do you guys study and what do you specialize in? I do biology olympiad. I specialize in anatomy and physiology, even though I'm better at botany. I mostly read and reread Campbell biology, sometimes taking notes, usually not. I memorize everything at least once so that it's much e...

Re: Biology for a Science Olympiad

IMO, the events that are most similar to the USABO are Ecology and Anatomy. If you're camp level, you should be able to do well on both, provided that you cover all of the diseases in Anatomy and the specific biomes in Ecology.

Re: National Test Discussion

Anatomy and Physiology (9) - This test was hard. The BAC formula did not work and that was annoying. The treatments portion of the test was very hard and was probably what determined event placements. I didn’t like how this test was almost all nervous system because that defeats the purpose of havi...

Re: National Test Discussion

Hi jander14indoor, However, I would argue for study events, a lower value might mean an easier test in general. For example, look at Anatomy and Physiology for both divisions. In Division B, the test was mostly on the easier side, allowing people from teams that don't do so well to have a chance to ...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Hi, For those of you who are slightly triggered by the fact that the track wasn't good/your hovercraft didn't perform up to expectations, here's a little story: In the month before nationals, I tried to get data about my hovercraft with the track that my coach built me, but due to modifications/the ...
