Do they ever release any nats tests? Or do you always have to buy all of them?

And how many tests are usually on the test packet that can be purchased?

Sorry for all the questions lol I appreciate any help
They are in the Science Olympiad store, sold as "Test Packets." When released, the 2018 CD will have files from the 2017 national tournament.

As for how many tests there are: It includes all tests and keys including trial events, as well as raw scores for each build event(it might not include the build portion of lab events though).

I'll say this: While my team (Treasure Valley Homeschool) didn't do very well overall, (51st in middle, 49th in high) we still managed to succeed in individual events! Some highlights from middle school and high school:
Middle School
Optics (24th) NeBH had this alone, but still managed to beat teams like Ladue, Shady Side, Eagle Hill, Longfellow, and most notably Beckendorff! Mission Possible (17th) Great job by my teammates, they said they were only two seconds off the target time! Notable teams they beat: Carnage, Shady Side, Paul J. Gelinas, and most notably Winston Churchill! Disease Detectives (16th) Nerd_Bunny and I did this together and did the best on our team! Notable teams we beat: Eagle Hill, Community, Hamilton, Paul J. Gelinas, Marie Murphy, and especially Solon! We also finished right behind Piedmont IB.
High School
Robot Arm (24th) Not many notable teams beaten here, but still third best finish on their team. Notables: Ladue Horton Watkins and LASA (Liberal Arts and Science Academy). Microbe Mission (17th) Great job here, 2nd best finish on the team! Notables: Ladue Horton Watkins, New Trier, William P. Clements and most notably Mira Loma! Experimental Design (12th) Amazing job on XD, there were a lot of notables they beat here! Most notably: New Trier, William P. Clements, Mira Loma, Harriton, and especially (this was big) Troy!

I posted this yesterday, but it got ignored. Does anyone know where I can find video replays of the opening ceremony and award ceremony? I tried searching through http://www.wright.edu/streaming and the wright state youtube channel, but I can't find it.

I've been looking for it too. It looks like it just hasn't been posted(even though they said it would be). It might be a week or two until it finally gets published, but they uploaded a video to Youtube today so I'm holding out hope that they upload it soon.

I have also been searching, it appears it hasn't been posted yet. I wanted to see myself doing the student pledge! (Yes, I was the boy up there, for those of you who were paying attention)

I checked on youtube, and it looks like last year's recordings weren't posted until August! But 2015's recordings were posted within a week of the end of the competition, so there's no minimum or maximum amount of time that we could have to wait. :?

Allegedly in 2013(when WSU hosted it last) it was posted to Youtube in two weeks but I'm a little wary to expect that since they're implying that it's already been posted.

And you did a great job! Hopefully I was able to help calm your nerves a bit with all the small talk during the wait backstage.

"Taller Heights Middle School" gg Dayton local news.

Also, does the posting of something from Friday foreshadow a posting of the Opening/Awards Ceremony?
