Last year my partners and I just found random words and drew them using pencils/paper (finding a whiteboard was hard). Most of the time they would just be random words we thought of on the spot but sometimes we'd find a science dictionary online.chscioly wrote:So I'm doing Picture This, with about 12 other people, and we're all pretty much clueless, since everyone who did it last year graduated. Does anyone here have any recommendations on how we would test each other with words? Should we just find random terms and draw them or limit words to a specific science, like earth science?
Another thing I'd like to point out to anybody doing picture this - continuity isn't everything. It doesn't matter too much if your partners change (my partners changed multiple times throughout the year). For example, last year my team got a new partner for picture this only a couple of weeks before Texas state (which is about 2.5 weeks before nats?) and we got second at both state and nationals because we worked super hard and practiced a lot. It can be an inconvenience, but there is no substitute for hard work, dedication, and practice.
If you work as hard as you can you can do anything. There is no secret to picture this, and arguably any event in science olympiad other than just working as hard as you can. Good luck!
