I can't believe that they made the event a 2 person event this year.

There's more competition. Two guessers and a sketcher was too easy. If one guesser can't guess very well the other can patch for that. But for this, both people HAVE to be good. They basically changed the difficulty from easy to hard. Also test makers can choose how many words there are, from 16-32 words.

The 32 word ceiling is the more significant change, I think. While the event may (nay, will) still be frustrating, it's a welcome change because it'll spread the higher scores more. It could spread the lower scores, too, if supervisors pack more simple terms throughout the list.

Hello. In order to help the team guess the word, a student may want the team to focus on a part of the picture he draws for e.g.

CREST meaning the top part of a wave

1. can they draw a wave diagram and an arrow pointing to the top part of any one wave?

similarly for solar

2. can they draw a house with a solar panel and have an arrow pointing to the solar panel?

Your coach should have a copy of the rules if he/she registered your team. Alternatively you can purchase the app or your own physical copy through the Science Olympiad store at soinc.org.

I'd suggest if you're getting a personal copy that you download the app, since it's cheaper and easier to read (although it may not contain some of the things in the hard copy, such as the draft nationals schedule; I don't have the app so I don't know for sure).

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?
