MS Science Bowl Petition

One of the things that convinced me to join high school Science Olympiad was being on a Science Bowl team in middle school, but unfortunately, my school district stopped having a Science Bowl team after 2014. I think all of us who have done Science Olympiad understand the value of participating in s...

Re: What do you call Science Olympiad?

calling it "the olympiad" or something like that I occasionally call it not "the olympiad" but "oly", because we normally talk about scioly and scibowl, but talking to other science people and just trying to differentiate between the two, the easiest way is to reduce t...

Re: New Jersey 2017

If NJ were a state that sent two teams to Nats then there might be slightly less stress and competition between 1st and 2nd but I'm sure controversies would come up between 2nd and 3rd :P Of course everyone always wants to go to Nats but I guess we just... Have to deal, right? (And stress over the p...

Re: SciOly Novel

So I just wanted to say thank you, Unome, for your advice, and also thank you to the forums and the chat and the wiki for just generally existing, for giving me ideas of what other context and anecdotes to include in the story. I managed to get to 50,000 words yesterday (or apparently officially it ...

Re: SciOly Novel

I know the culture in my novel would make sense in my own state but I feel like if I do that then the fictional high school teams become direct parallels of real schools (which they're not meant to be! I more or less imagined like two polarized distorted versions of what my school's team could be, a...

Re: SciOly Novel

Thank you! I made it happen in the story that they find out on soinc that another school dropped their bid (and then they all Facebook messenger each other and everything is hype etc etc etc) - I haven't actually decided what state the main part of the story is set in, there's a part of me that want...

SciOly Novel

I've been trying to do NaNoWriMo this year, writing a novel about two girls who do SciOly at rival schools in the same state, and although I haven't been to Nats, and I'm not a builder, and there are a million other aspects of SciOly that I haven't personally experienced, I don't really want to have...
