Well its better than the rules they had before. The physical tasks seem like things that anyone could do and dont really test your athletic ability like I thought they would. I still dont like the fact that it is a 4 person event

an event. Theres 4 people per team and all they do is complete a physical challenge then get asked a science related question. It's a relay with a team challenge at the end. Your being timed while you do this. Lowest time wins.

The team challenge at regionals for us was horrible!! It was that there was a soccer ball which you had to pass to each player and then kick into a net 10 ft away without a goalie!! Hopefully the challenges will be better than that!!

ok let me try to clear this up once and for all.... you and some other peoplego through stations there will be one per person then a team challenge where you all have to work together. at each station you have a physical task to do like throw a plush toy into a trashcan from 10 feet, then you have a scientific task like identify this mineral. it will be like a relay one goes then another and so on you will have a relay object like a chopstick to act like the relay pole thing ok got it?
SO stressed!
