Re: Experimental Design B/C

Phenyl: what would you think of (in addition to your interpretation of NC's event) asking questions about "landmark" experiments in various fields? idk, just brainstorming. Eh, I feel like that would require students to know details of too many different experiments. I like the idea of using the ac...

Re: Anatomy B/C

How likely is this to change? Will it be worth it to start getting ready for nervous now? So happy respiratory is gone, I hated it...although I didn't compete in it other than invitationals (conflicts :evil:). I think that it would probably be good to do at least a basic overview, just to get yours...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

I may be remembering incorrectly, but I think someone said that in NC, they tell you the experiment instead of giving you a topic? Can anyone from NC clarify that? In NC they've tried this different setup (just this year for regionals) where teams are given stations and each one has scenarios and a...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

I disagree about the time. We had no trouble doing the experiment and write-up it one hour. In fact, we finished with almost 20 minutes left, AND we had only two of us actually doing 95% of the writing (the other person carried out the experiment and wrote our names on the papers). Is this what you...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

I know Gelinas was second-tiered for doing concentration of one liquid (rather than using multiple liquids) vs. pH, because "Sprite vs. lemonade" is qualitative rather than quantitative (which is just bad experimental form). I don't blame them, and I think it's pretty ridiculous that the experiment...

Re: Experimental Design B/C

We wrote that lemonade was the mos acidic, sprite an apple juice were equally as acidic as each other but not as acidic as lemonade, and water was the least acidic. And how did you graph that? That's the problem: "lemonade - sprite - apple juice - water" is not a quantitative axis. Argh, this makes...

Re: 2012 National Tournament: University of Central Florida

All done! Didn't place, but didn't expect to (after states, I had a lot of school hanging over), but my brother (5th grade) and sister got 2nd in Aquifers!! Yeah! Also, our food science team consisted of a fifth and sixth grader--they didn't do too badly, huh? I have extremely high hopes for Marylan...

We're also in a residence inn, but we have it to ourselves!
Where are you?
