Re: Physics Lab B/C

One thing: One question I was very confused about was the one about what would happen if the average wind velocity in a wind farm doubled and how would the average available kinetic energy in the air change. I was pretty sure it's Kinetic Energy = 0.5 * rho * area * velocity^3, which means that if ...

Re: Indiana Science Olympiad

Well, my 2nd and last nationals is over and I graduate from high school in a week. The tournament was very exciting with Bloomington South finishing 13th (2nd Astronomy, 1st Disease Detectives, 4th Enviro Chem, 2nd Physics Lab, 6th Technical Problem Solving, as well as 2nd in two trial events: Helic...

Re: Fossils B/C

I thought the C test was ok but not amazing. There was a bunch of stuff that wasn't really on the list and it felt like the vast majority of the questions were really easy with just a few weird/hard things. It's kind of disturbing that some people are saying an almost identical test was given previo...

Re: Astronomy C

There was a note on the front page saying the test would be posted on a website but it did not specify which. I would assume tufts.

Re: Astronomy C

Hey, I just want to say that the Astronomy test was very impressive; easily the single best test I have seen at a Science Olympiad competition. I think most teams would agree that it was a very difficult test but that the questions were both interesting and meaningful. Thanks. By the way, congratula...

Re: Physics Lab B/C

Here are some results from C-division nationals if anyone is interested. The test was very easy and so basically the best blades won. The way they had it set up was that there was a high speed fan and a low speed fan. At each fan, they would record your reading for that speed. The fans were not part...

Re: National Predictions

Yeah, in virtually every competition you end up with just a few teams that usually win.

However, it's not impossible for a fairly new team to do well at Science Olympiad. Just look at how good LASA has become in the last few years.

Re: Favorite Dinosaurs (or other fossils)

Why does everyone love Phacops so much? I hate it. Just look at them. They're pretty big for trilobites, they have huge awesome eyes, they have an enormous glabella covered in bumps...what more could you ask for... If you've ever gone fossil hunting before, finding a trilobite is a completely diffe...
