reposting the time winneratlife did ten events at one tournament because #goals:

winneratlife wrote:6 [time slots]. I do MagLev test before it starts, run to Chem Lab (Block 1), then run to Technical [Problem Solving] (Block 2), finish 15 minutes early, sprint to Robot Arm, run it, run to Write It Do It (Block 3), get out like 25 minutes early due to the nature of the event, drive across campus (apparently...) to Gravity Vehicle, compete, stop by homeroom, grab a slice of pizza, keep running, hit DyPlan (Block 4), then head to Fermi (Block 5), get out 20 minutes early, compete for Boomilever, and end with Circuit Lab (Block 6).

I have my partner run the MagLev without me.

It would be interesting to graph team results in X invitational vs. nationals for various tournaments. Has anyone done this before?

If this has/will be done, it would be interesting to see MIT vs. Nats. :D

I think Science Olympiad is great at prepping kids for higher education, the other day on my math final I knew that I didn't need to get 100%, but if I did well enough and beat enough other people the rest would work itself out.

Yep, I noticed this as well. Even early on I was able to adapt to paying more attention not to the number grade itself, but how it compared to the class average. So when I eventually got to Thermo (our weed-out class; every engineering department has one) I wasn't as freaked out about trying to get a high number grade, and instead focused on just understanding the material better than most people would, and it turned out that I did better than I maybe would have if I was focused on getting everything right to start out with.

There will be 51 teams at the NC state (division C) tournament this year — does that make it the biggest state tournament in the country?

Nope, NY C has 55 and MI has 60 in each division (the latter of which I believe is the standing record).
