Re: Experimental Design B/C

On logistic, moral, and credible levels: is it fair that ExD never changes? The rubric that's used practically never changes, and being a B/C event, you could start from 6th gr. and sweep all the way until 12th. Isn't the point of event rotations to disallow students to master an event and "sweep" ...

Re: Gravity Vehicle C

Slight digression, the rules say that the vehicle must have a point on either side, between the front and rear axles. They also state that there is a Targe Point, rather than a Target Line. So, doesn't this mean that the vehicle will have to travel a crooked/curved path, assuming that it starts on ...

In mousetrap vehicle, I added a cardboard tray to my car for the string to fall on so I wouldn't get disqualified.

Re: Gravity Vehicle C

I am confused about rule 3f. It requires the measurement point to be "on either side of the vehicle". Does that mean it can be wherever you want it like in the middle or does it have to be on the far left or far right?

Re: Forestry B/C

The science olympiad tree list has "Maple" as a family which is actually replaced by the Soapberry family by recent studies because of their link with Buckeyes and Maple is their own genus now. Should this be reported or something...? This year, the national list is based off the taxonomy of the Au...
