Re: Designer Genes C

This is my first year doing Designer Genes.
Is the genetics section of Campbell Biology (200 pages) sufficient enough as a reference, or would I need to read a genetics textbook?
I have a Humans Genetic textbook by Ricki Lewis that is quite long (430 pages).

Re: How do I motivate my team?

Giantpants, That sounds very helpful. We have weekly emails but the tone is a lot more formal. We did set goals but they were a lot more individual goals instead of a team goal. The teacher last year said that the goal for the team is that everyone can get a medal (5th place or above) but I think th...

Re: Too Many People in My Team

Actually, the issue has been resolved because 3 people who are going to DECA states can't do Science Olympiad (date conflicts for regional). Nevertheless, thank you for the advice! Last year some people weren't motivated to attend the meetings because we didn't do much. The meetings were in classroo...

Re: Too Many People in My Team

You are right. I will ask my advisor how to deal with this issue and ask them to speak for themselves. This happened 6 months ago but I never talked about this problem with those two people. EastStroudsburg13, I want to clarify what you are saying. Dedication + attendance is a first priority, right?...

Re: How do I motivate my team?

I am on the same boat with you, platypusomelette. My school's team started in 2014 and the team spirit idea doesn't exist in my school. To be honest, the team is more of a cluster of individuals that signed up for their own events. I was thinking of doing an icebreaker in the beginning of the meetin...

Re: Too Many People in My Team

Thanks for your input. Unfortunately, our team isn't super serious about it so last year we only did one regional. We have people's results. Apparently for one event (2 people) it was signed up but based on the ranking I assume that they didn't even show up at the actual event (got last place). That...

Too Many People in My Team

For the first time in my school, the number of people has exceeded the limit (15 people). Our school Science Olympiad team is unfamiliar with selection of team members so it was based on a first come first serve basis. There was no selection process. Currently, there are 18 people that signed up 2-3...

Re: Protein Modeling C

I still don't see anything that was updated on MSOE. I would wait until the rule manual gets published for 2020.

Re: Sounds of Music C

Do people get disqualified for using the same prototype if they are competing in the same event for the second year? I did well on Sounds of Music and I don't feel like changing my prototype by a lot. I will rebuild it but it will still be F major starting at F4.
