Re: Write It CAD It [mini SO, Satellite SO]

Is there any general consensus on what platform to use? I know BEARSO used FreeCAD but as someone said, it doesn't work on school issued Chromebooks (Students cannot download or enable anything on school issued Chromebooks.) My students have school issued Chromebooks and other schools at my tourname...

Re: Michigan 2020

Region 11, the region around Michigan State University, has postponed their regional, depending on what happens with the State tournament. The coaches received an email from the regional director today.

Re: Haslett (MI) Invitational

The Haslett Invitational was snowed out last weekend. We have 27 teams who have agreed to reschedule on Feb. 29th. If you've had an event cancelled or are just looking for a late invitational, we'd love to have you join us. The tests are all written. We again have a strong field; 80% of the current ...

Re: Prebuild kit length

Hi Everyone! I've discovered a dilemma. Ok, so the prebuild is 5keg.pdb, right? It's residues 31-145. That means there are 115 residues (including the first one, 145-31= 114, plus one is 115). That means, at the standard scale of 2cm per amino acid, I should need 230 cm. However, the kit is only 22...

Re: Michigan 2020

I don't know what the Michigan state office has been telling teams, but their website has the unclear statement that SO Inc. "advised" that teams should be limited to 15 members. I feel it's unlikely that the national office required Michigan to revert to 15 members per team; after all, New Jersey ...

Coaches got an email from the State Director: Michigan Science Olympiad is not allowed to increase their team size to 17, so they are going back to 15 per team for this year.

Re: Michigan 2020

There are 6 testing blocks, no surprises That isn't a surprise? Or have I mixed up MI with some other state... They went to 5 testing blocks last year. Before that it was always 6. I'm only a little surprised they went back to 6 blocks this year; I'm sure they got more than a few complaints. Althou...
