Re: 9th Graders in Division B

I thought it would only be fitting to chime into this discussion as an alum of Daniel Wright as everyone seems to be used our team as an example. While it is true that ninth graders generally have better placements than a sixth, seventh, or eighth grader, that can easily be overcome. At the 2017 Nat...

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

In Meads Mills' best year they had 139. 2017, 116. (they got 7th that year) 2016, 139. (they got 3rd) Meads Mill's actual best state performance is a 70, where they got 4th. They scored 74 the following year and also placed 4th (although they were widely predicted to win, a couple of bombs brought ...

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe Kennedy does not use 9th graders which gives then extra points in my DW book. They use ninth graders. https://elestoque.org/2018/05/25/briefs/stem/kennedy-middle-school-science-olympiad-team-wins-fourth-place-at-nationals/ Huh this is new information to ...

Re: Unofficial Rankings B

My Div C predictions are likely highly biased this year so I’m going to go for a div B prediction this year. 1. Kennedy I think that because Kennedy hasn’t necessarily attended invitationals with the other top teams of the Midwest and east coast that they’re overlooked, but from personal experience,...

Re: Illinois 2019

Yes! Libertyville got 4th but Cary Grove failed to qualify. I know as our school was the only school in our district to make state this year. Really? That certainly surprises me. Now you've got me curious as to who got 7th . . . by the looks of it it seems to be a team that didn't qualify within th...

Re: Disease Detectives B/C

Thanks ... another question: the focus of the 2018-2019 season is Environmental Quality. How should I study for that and can someone give examples of how this topic will be assessed in varying degrees of competition? Note: The final events chart for 2018-2019 originally showed "Environmental Qualit...

Re: Prediction Contest 2018

I feel like something in the div B events got screwed up because i definitely put Solon first for rocks and I had beckendorff for meteorology. However, I guess I shouldn’t be complaining because I ended up winning anyways :D

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

Since I did this last year, might as well do this again. Division B: Anatomy and Physiology (1): I'm not going to lie, this is the hardest anatomy test I've taken all season. I felt liked we guessed for half of it and was feeling terrible as I walked out of the exam room. The test was originally mea...

Re: Schools you want to beat with a burning passion in your heart.

I personally want to beat Daniel Wright in herpetology because they won by a small margin because we hadn't finished salamanders yet. Why me? :? I’m gonna go with Longfellow in microbe because they’re the only team other than Ladue (rip nats2k18), who beat me last year and I want revenge :twisted:

It expands isothermally to 4 times its volume, is compessed isobarically to its original volume, after which it is returned to its original temp...

Re: Poorly Run Event Stories

Stupidly run roller coaster event supervisor dq'd us. We would have gotten top 3 in roller and would have gone to nationals. It's been 5 days and I still feel super sad and super disappointed that we were so close to going to nationals. While the roller coaster ES May have DQ’d you for no reason, k...
