Re: Compute This B

Does it even out? I could have made the graph, pasted it into MS Word, cleared the data in Excel and dump the graph there, maybe. If I did that the judges would be suspicious of something. This won't work if they read the graph closely.

Re: Bottle Rocket B

I built one out of some posterboard foam that was quite sturdy and would not crease but I didn't bring my rocket to the competition as another teammate built two other rockets. He also forgot the labels so I asked another group to borrow their labels after they launched their rocket and fortunately ...

Re: Other extracurriculars people do

I wish my new school had a chamber orchestra, a cross country team, a football team, and gave music lessons like my old school. All I did this year besides SO was play the cello in the school's production of Bye Bye Birdie and the reahersals for that were really, really time consuming. Last year I d...

Re: Is Science Olympiad worth it?

All that studying and hard work for nothing if we screw up in my opinion. Maybe it would be more fun if before competition season all the schools could meet up and test each other, compete in building events, etc.

Re: Is Science Olympiad worth it?

Unfortunately, scioly is afterschool at my school and it's two days a week. I think that what's worth it the most from it are the friends that you make from it. A trip to NATS would be awesome.

Re: How does your school do tryouts for the competition team

Whoa, I moved from Stroudsburg Middle School and could have gone to Stroudsburg HS if I didn't move to Louis Pasteur MS in Queens.

Re: Compute This B

35th place, what now? All we did was answer three questions, no graph. What we could have done was make a data table with realistic data points and create the graph from there. The rubric didn't say anything about correct data on the graph, just the right labels, title, etc., right?

Re: Awesome Aquifers B

It really helped me in my presentation to show that I really, truely understand the vocab words. I just explained the concepts using an extensive knowledge of the vocab words to impress the judge and managed 4th place at NY States even though the model that we built was nothing but a layer of sand,...

Re: New York 2011

My team got a little under 3 seconds probably because of the extreme amount of drag and the fact that we never tested it before. There have been excellent backsliders in NY state and the weather was great. It would be great if there could be more than one launch for each rocket at different times an...
