We'll leave that to the competition!

What events are you most excited for? I'm all ready to try everything XD

I want to do Sounds of Music and Food Science(again) bad. I also am interested in Shock Value, Metric Mastery, Experimental Design, Heredity, (in no particular order, probably the wrong order) and I am also minimally interested in Keep the Heat, Meteorology, and Write It/Do It.

Boy that's the problem with me. At least not as bad as Slarik's sister, who wants to do about 21 of the 23 events.

Our schools team is more organized and democratic. (No offense meant to any other school) 3 or 4 events for everyone. That being said, I'm interested in meteorology, which is my favorite event, reach for the stars, (which my dad has re-discovered as a nerdy hobby from his childhood), dynamic planet. (I've always loved mountains and mountaineering.) heredity ? Helicopters? Rotor egg drop?

I think Pilgrimage will win this year again, a wider margin than last year. Honestly, people on my team don't try and the coaches refuse to hand them the pink slip after 2 failed competitions. (Then again, I'm a huge pessimist ;) )

You sure only 21?
Exothermic reactions? I studied them before they were cool.

Our 6th graders generally don't compete. Our entire team (A/B) is 7th and 8th graders.

That is exactly my point as far as how many events the older students have... Some teams don't have that luxury.

Any of you who play a musical instrument or sing, could you do me a favor (unrelated to Science Olympiad)? Check out this link and follow the "what can you do" instructions. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1yrM ... OsdJg/edit Thanks!

Hey party people, just wanted to bring up this cool "experimental" competition that we will be running in February!

This “invitational” will offer you the opportunity to participate without a traditional team structure, allowing schools to participate with a minimum level of event conflicts and as many students as they would like. This event will be held on February 9th, 2013 at Harriton High School in Southeastern Pennsylvania and open to any school that shows up, regardless of state.

Basically, every event will be run for three time slots (builds will be running for all six), with open signups online for every event. There will be no team aspect for the competition, every event will be scored by pairs of partners, instead of team. Awards will be given out for each event, but team standings will not be considered, allowing schools to bring as many students as possible!

Visit our website for more info: http://h2s2o.com/festivus.php If you have any questions email us at info@h2s2o.com.

Hope to see you there!
Harriton 2013 (Captain 2012-2013)
Penn 2017

2014 PA State Compound Machines Supervisor

Past Events: Fermi, Thermo, WIDI, Maglev, TPS, Chem Lab, Mission, Sounds, Trajectory, Mousetrap, etc.

If anyone knows some Montgomery County homeschooled high schoolers, Pilgrimage Division C needs a few more team members!
