The big problem with it is that lab events are difficult to do and buildits cant be done...

Also, apparently Iolani did not get permission from NSO to host this invitational.

I thought it was a little specific... Also, my partner and I were too lazy to do the math so we just skipped it! :)

Hey guys, if any of you took the Remote Sensing test, how was it? My friend and I actually wrote the test and any feedback would be nice!

:shock: wow. I think one of the main things that got people too was that there was multiple answers. My partner and I didn't read the instructions very clearly so we only answered with one answer...

Edit: What school wrote the test?

I thought it was a pretty good test, although the question about the thickness of the molecule, the "ellipse" looked a lot like a circle, and didn't match the answer keys measurements... maybe our printer distorted it or something.
