Ah, a trial event. Ok, well it was an event for the past years, so all you can really do is get with a partner, grab a glossary of science terms of some sort and start to practice. Over practice you will get better and better at being able to "read" each others clues. I believe you are limited to 2 word clues so I guess just try out different terms/glossaries and practice! :D

I remember the past two years (when i was in 7th/8th grade) science word became an event that everyone "loved" to practice cause we would sit in a big group and just "play" science word until our coach ended up implementing a rule that no large groups should be together in a room unless actually working on something. (it was a rule that never actually worked)

If you know what Picture This is, it's basically the same thing with words. You study basically the same way, by practicing a lot.

I don't know what Picture This is, but I think I get the point.

No, I don't think so. Maybe that's why they have science word instead.

You're only allowed to give 2 worded clues. My friend and i were totally rockin' at this event, i mean like, we finish each others' sentences now. Anyway, you can give as many clues as you want, just you can only say 2 words at a time.

Example, say the word was "cambium":
person 1: plant part
person 2: anther?
person 1: xylem, phloem
person 2: cambium!

2 worded clues, and before you can give the next clue, they have to guess something.
