chalker, can Electric Vehicle be an event before or during the year of 2023, so I can do what would probably be my favorite event before I graduate?

Also please please, Robot Arm will come back right?

Point acknoweldged..... but Chalker, Texas, with 3 nats level teams, needs 2 bids. To let it go without would be defeating the spirit of SciOly.
SoCal C has 3, if not more, "nats level" teams. Don't they need two bids too? I agree that it was unfair that a bid was taken from Texas, but your arguments are weak. I mean, what's the real definition of "nats level"? Don't plenty of states have "nats level" teams that don't get to go to nats? And how exactly would that defeat the spirit of SciOly? The whole point of Science Olympiad is to encourage STEM in middle and high schools through competition. Texas teams can still have both of those things without going to nats.
Two years ago I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Last year I knew stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
Now I'm learning stuff about oceanography, fossils, and writing/following instructions, yay for the third time!

Chalker, can we multiply our overall points by the number of people on our team divided by 15? And then perhaps give Tennessee Division C 3 Nationals bids?
(7/15 this year, so we'd've gotten 3rd at State this year with 153 points...)

The whole point of Science Olympiad is to encourage STEM in middle and high schools through competition. Texas teams can still have both of those things without going to nats.
In that case what would you count as valid reason for another bid? Encouraging STEM in SciOly is done by pitting schools against each other for competition purposes, then watching people be forced to improve. Texas has 3 teams that have consistently done well in national level tournaments, and to exclude one of them is reducing competition, and therefore the need to improve.

No, there's coding and stuff involved. Plus you can you use a more powerful motor.
