Re: Computer Science Events in Science Olympiad

I'd definitely align that they'd be good to have for the olympiad, definitely in place of a certain robotics event we won't talk about. Overall I think I like Code Analysis and Sourcecode, and I don't see why Scioly couldn't move forward with either of those. Robot events are alright if done proper...

Re: Computer Science Events in Science Olympiad

I agree, from a state that competes in code analysis regularly I believe that creating a computer science event or taking a CS trial event and making it a national event is a good idea. The problem is: what does it rotate with and what does the schedule look like now for the national rotation. I am ...

1. Snell's law relates angles of incidence and refraction through the formula n1*sin(theta1) = n2*sin(theta2), where n are the refractive indices of the two media. Typical refractive index of air is close to 1.
2. Palynology
3. Ninhydrin
Correct!

Re: Crime Busters B

I'll put up the next set of questions since I'm going to forget: 1. What are the full names of the four DNA bases? 2. Paper-pen chromatography separates ink using what property of the ink molecules? 3. Name one way cat hair differs from dog hair. 1. adenine, cytosine, guanine, thymine 2. Polarity, ...

Re: Crime Busters B

Let's get this marathon started! 1. Which powder is the only one included in this event with a pH of 2? 2. How might you distinguish cornstarch from flour? 3. Which metals vigorously react with HCL? 4. Is ammonia basic, neutral, or acidic? Some more serious answers: (remember to use the spoiler!) 1...

Re: Thoughts on HS Writers

I think the main goal is to get qualified people to write the test and sometimes high school writers and ESs are the best option.
