I'm just wondering, because basically everything in this event is covered in my 9th grade Bio class... being a 9th grader currently taking Bio makes this event insanely easy (at least, with my teacher).

I did Food Sci, and I kept waiting for a food label to show up on Bio-Process because I could have done that so easily, but I never saw one on an actual event... and now I'm not doing Bio-Process anymore :-(

Bio process is insanely easy...the problem is TIME. you only have about six minutes at each station, so you end up guessing on a lot of things. practice working under pressure in a short period of time.

Well, yeah, 6 min or even shorter- the people who did it for my team last year at Nats said they had like 2 min per station, each with a ton of questions and stuff... One team had left their pen or something at the station, so one of the people from my team got up to give it back to them, and the sup started the time for the station while she was still crossing the room to hand it to the other team! You have to know everything off the top of your head, because you really won't have time to think about it.

You should basically be able to do everything in the coaches manual at the absolute minimum. I went to the New Caney invitational and there was some stuff that was not mentioned in the coaches manual. When I took the test they didn't have stations they just gave you 60 min to complete everything on the test. I hope thats what they do at state.

at our regionals, there were no organized stations. We got a written test, and there were 4 stations around the room. When we wanted to , you just got up to do the/a station. The only problem is that there were no time limits on the stations, so we had finished our written portion and 3 stations, but had to wait for 7 minutes for our last station to open up

Oh? We had 16, all 2 min, and 40 sec. at Regionals :|

Fun, though. A little dry, however.

Do you mean you didn't have any written stuff and everything on the test was just stations? I was just wondering because we didn't have BPL at our regionals and I'm competing in it for the first time at state.

Our Regional was I think four or five stations, one with a microscope (you had to find a cell undergoing mitosis in an onion root slide), one with a bunch of cartoon fish and questions about their genetics (i.e., the red fish and the yellow fish gave birth to orange fish, what is this called and what are their genotypes?), one with a dichotomous key of different types of trees based on pictures of their leaves (nobody finished that one, even us, and we got 1st- we only did like 10 of the 14), and some other stuff I don't remember.
