Re: Team selections

Yeah, I always felt that test writing was a problem for our school too. It would be nice if we could find other ways to get tests for all events rather than through our upperclassmen (though having upperclassmen writing the tests definitely makes sense, it would put some stress for my school in part...

Re: PICTURES, SCORES, VIDEOS!!

Bruh I can't even dream of those weights right now.

Improving Weak Events

Hey guys,
Do you know how to improve events that are seemingly weaker throughout a team? If nobody knows how to do a particular event really well, what are things you can do to improve them(assuming that you are not doing them)?

Thanks!

Re: Untouchable Events

Incorrect. Try again next time.
oof

But engineering involves many components of science

And also, science olympiad defines itself as a "hands-on STEM competition"

So... we need an equal distribution between science, tech, engineering, and math events (even though a lot of those overlap...)!
