A list of teams currently registered for the MIT invitational is now available at http://scioly.mit.edu/wp-content/upload ... umbers.pdf, though the field may change slightly as the deadline for our receipt of the registration fee approaches. We're also very excited to have finalized our roster of lead event supervisors, which includes several people with experience writing and supervising events at the national tournament, as well as numerous Science Olympiad alumni who were national medalists and national champions back in the day.

Oh, apparently we're participating (Chattahoochee) and nobody noticed... alongside a bunch of schools we'll never beat :D (and just so i can be right later, I'm predicting an 18th place finish for our A-team ;) )

I keep doing that, maybe it's just from taking too many tests... I meant it's unusual that I haven't heard about it (especially if they registered that early)

I just noticed that Mission Possible was listed as an impounded event, although impound is only required for state and regional level competitions. Is that a typo?

Thank you for your question and for your close reading of our tentative schedule PDF -- this was a typo and has now been fixed. As indicated on the rules and policies page of our website and in an email to coaches on November 3rd, the MIT Science Olympiad Invitational Tournament will follow regional tournament rules for events that specify different rules for different levels of competition, so Mission Possible will use an ideal operation time of 60.0 seconds and not require impound.

I'm pleased to announce that we'll be offering guided tours of MIT's campus at 11:00 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. on tournament day! However, space is limited, and we want to try to give priority to high school juniors from out-of-state. See http://scioly.mit.edu/tournament-day/ for more information.

Hi, I had a quick question about the format of protein modeling. Under the assumption that there will be a onsite build, I figured that since this was an invitational tournament the build would be of "Designed Zinc Finger-like Proteins" as linked below. But I was talking with one of my scio captains and he said it would be run more like a regional competition. Is the onsite build is going to be of the invitational level or the regional level?

Thanks!

Great question -- thanks for asking. We're using the official invitational kits from MSOE/3D Molecular Designs. I've added a note to http://scioly.mit.edu/tournament-information/events/.

MIT's Invitational was great. Everything ran really well. Great supervisors. Everyone thought the tests were really good. Sometimes it seems like old tests are used at some invitationals and even at our regionals but not at MIT. The snow added to the fun. Best invitational to go to. Nice to have a tour of MIT. Glad I went. Bet the size would double if every team knew the top ten teams got automatic admission to MIT! :lol:

So are there results yet, or are those still being finalized?
