Re: Mission Possible C

There’s nothing more infuriating in Science Olympiad than having a crazy-good device underperform at competition. I’ve watched it happen to my team before and it totally sucks. Glad you at least still got a medal for it :)

Re: Nationals Event Discussion

There was one calculus free response and one calculus multiple choice. They're always super fun when they come up, even if they are frowned upon by Science Olympiad :D . Oh I agree, very fun. I think they are frowned upon because Scioly assumes that many people will have not taken calculus until th...

Re: Schools you want to beat with a burning passion in your heart.

If you truly think there was a build policy violation, report it to the arbitration board. But, they will probably just laugh at you. Daniel Wright is just really, really good at towers. Agree with East: don't accuse people of build policy violations. It's impossible to tell by how good the device i...

Re: Hovercraft B/C

Does anyone know if they will give you credit for an answer being 51.50N when the answer key says 51.52N? Does that small difference affect if you get credit or not? 100% dependent on the supervisor. If the supervisor is requesting the calculation to be done in a certain way using sig figs, then I ...

Re: Ohio 2018

While your at it give NY some more. (But like there's so many teams that are good enough to qualify that are being blocked out by things like DC this'll never happen without making drastic changes to the nats system.

Re: Michigan 2018

DCD and Troy did better than their medals indicated, FHC much worse. Will be interesting to see the scores.

My guess is Northville and GH were very close.
