Re: Pennsylvania 2011

On unrelated note, does anyone know why this year's states shirt (http://projects.juniata.edu/scioly/pacomp/tshirt.pdf) says 20th anniversary? I have the 2009 shirt that has a big "25th anniversary" on it, so I'm not really sure what's going on..

Re: Can't Judge a Powder B

What powders would you suggest I use? I would suggest using cornstarch (or something similar) and salt/sugar at least once, especially if you haven't done the event before.

Re: Science Crime Busters B

our teacher told us to study blood spatters and the like... and where is the cb wiki? You click on the little "Wiki" button. Then, you go to 2011 Events. Under B Events, there is a link to a page about Crime Busters. According to the Wiki, the event was shortened to just "Crime Buste...

Re: Science Crime Busters B

The Crime Busters Wiki would be a good place to start. After that, any specific questions could be asked here though.

Re: Can't Judge a Powder B

Absolutely not. It may mean that in order to answer the question (and get the full 5 points), you have to make an inference from your observation, but a good test/test grader would never dock points because you made an observation and not an inference. The Can't Judge A Powder has a good sectio...

Re: Science Crime Busters B

Just a general thing It seems that the Chem Events have added more to the Safety Requirements "Long Pants AND LONG sleeved shirt to the wrist AND a chemical apron/lab coat" last year it was optional to have a long shirt under a lab coat now it seems like they want both. Which is a bit red...
