Is the paper copy going on sale on September 2nd along with all of the other Science Olympiad 2015 materials? Will the app be available on the same date?
Maybe or maybe not. We still have a lot of work to do between now and then to get everything ready.

This is probably a silly question, but is the schedule always released with the paper rule book? Is there a reason why that can't be released earlier or separately for event assignment purposes?

Yes, it's released with the rule book. And keep in mind it's 'tentative'. We've occasionally had to change it after publishing (and in fact just recently finalized it). I'm not sure why you'd be assigning events already since the rules aren't actually out yet. It'll also appear on the Nebraska website at some point.

I was actually planning to switch some of my events based on how the schedule looks.

Thanks for your response! We've just got quite a few kids chomping at the bit! :)

Now that it is very close to September 2nd, how far in development is the app? Will it be available tomorrow? It would be very convenient to get the rules right when they released in contrast to waiting for the paper copy to arrive.

No, it won't be released tomorrow. More likely next week at this point.

Oh, that's too bad! We are waiting anxiously on the rules in the mail....Is there anywhere online to find out what the general topics are for Tech Problem Solving this year?

Not yet. Eventually there will be resources on the event page at http://soinc.org/tech_prob_c
