Are there any rumors on what the trial events will be? Does anyone know when trial events will be announced?
They're usually not announced until all the regionals have happened. If it follows the pattern of previous years, there will be Geocaching at B and C levels, and probably Pentathlon for B, and there will be a couple of the events that are probably coming next year (Electric Wright Stuff? WiFi Lab again? Crave the Wave / It's about Time?)
Maybe codebusters for B, because it's easy to set up and run.
Pssst! Just to let you know, but the list has already online! (Idk why its not on the state site thou
These are most likely going to be them:
TRIAL: AWESOME AQUIFERS (B)
- Participants will construct an aquifer and answer questions about groundwater concepts.
TRIAL: CHEM CLUE (B)
- Participants will answer questions about chemistry related items and/or concepts by means of a set of 5 clues which become more specific.
TRIAL: CRAVE THE WAVE (B)
- Participants will demonstrate knowledge and process skills needed to solve problems and answer questions regarding all types and areas of waves and wave motion
TRIAL: ELECTRIC WRIGHT STUFF (B and C)
- Prior to the competition teams design, construct and test free flight capacitor powered monoplanes to achieve maximum time aloft.
TRIAL: ENVIRONMENTAL CHEM (C)
- Participants will answer questions involving soil analysis to evaluate terrestrial environments.
TRIAL: GEOCACHING (B and C)
- Participants will use a handheld GPS device to follow a series of way-points to virtual caches and answer a series of questions.
TRIAL: GREEN GENERATION (B)
- Participants will answer questions involving content knowledge and process skills to evaluate aquatic environments.
TRIAL: IT'S ABOUT TIME (C)
- Prior to the competition teams will construct a device that keeps track of time without the use of electronics.
TRIAL: PENTATHLON (B)
- Teams will compete in an academic and physical pentathlon that will demonstrate the team's overall understanding of the five major Science Olympiad content areas.
TRIAL: SOLAR POWER (C)
- Prior to the competition teams will construct a device to collect heat and complete a written test on alternative energy concepts.
TRIAL: SOURCE CODE (C)
- Teams will develop and code an efficient computer program that will find a solution to a problem - computer science and mathematics.
TRIAL: WIFI LAB (C)
- Prior to the competition teams construct an antenna able to transmit a signal at 2.4 GHz and complete a written test on the principals of electromagnetic wave propagation
I would have been SO down to do Source Code if they offered it 4 years ago
