Ack. Does it usually take all 50 minutes to write everything down? My hand was aching in the end. :roll:

same here. one time we were actually late coming out cuz we wrote up until they called time, and we still had to do clean up and everything.

*sigh* If you had to skip anything in the written part, what would you skip?

i don't think that there is anything that you can actually skip but, you could be less in-depth in your observations maybe...

So is there any way to split up the written part to save time and still make it look neat? I would think that would be pretty tough.

I don't think it's possible to not split up the written part... there just wouldn't be time otherwise if only one person was doing the writing! Just have everyone do different sections... does that not work? Still looks pretty neat, I think.

we split up the writing part. at the beginning of the year, we talked about who wanted to do what, what was really plausible with the set up we had, and then we compromised. it works fine, and we don't really care about neatness, as long as the judges can read it.

Coodinating yourselves and knowing exactly who is writing what is really important. For me it was the difference between 3rd at regions and 2nd at state.

Well I had really bad luck on that part then; I was the only person on my team with good handwriting, And I was the only one who knew what to write. xD One person was subbing for another. >.>

Have one person do the procedure, materials, and conclusion, and have the other two do the experiment, record data, and graph.
