Re: Experimental Design

Experimental Design is, far and away, my favorite event in all of Science Olympiad. That's right - I'd defend Exp. Des. against even the most popular of building events. In my mind, it blows them away. Why do I love Experimental? It is the essence of the event that appeals to me. You're given the ta...

Re: Your Daily Random Comment

Saturated calomel electrodes are good for electrochemical impedance spectroscopy.

Yeah, you heard me.

Re: Compute This

Perhaps a portion of my disgust toward this event comes from being a human impound at NY States in 2005. Yes, that's right. Thanks to a bit of snow at West Point (a few inches never hurt anyone, by the way), all people in Compute This, having already seen the problem, were forced to stay in the star...

You wear the pie on your head like a little hat because it looks funny.

The Pie Race

1. You bake a pie as fast as you can.

2. You ride a unicycle.

3. You wear the pie on your head like a little hat because it looks funny.

4. It's the Pie Race.

Nobody understands The Pie Race.

Re: Compute This

My absolute disgust for this event cannot be accurately measured by current human means. However, in advance of the event actually happening, a fine Google searching technique was very helpful to my efforts in the event in the past.

Re: Where are you going for colleges?

While most of the seniors from my final Science Olympiad team did go the "science" route (I was one of them), one did differ from the norm. After being an excellent Experimenter (for Experimental Design), he proceeded to go off and major in something English-related (I'm not sure if it's pure Englis...

In terms of New York's Science Olympiad, I'm going to direct you to the New York State Science Olympiad website: http://newyorkscioly.org/ . There are 11 regions, each running their own competition prior to the state tournament (according to the National website, we have the most schools registered ...
