I have absolutely no idea where to find Arkansas or Wyoming, I've tried the news and various social medias but there's literally nothing. I was thinking about contacting someone from either state's administration because there are some links but I think it would be better if a mod did that.
Also I did try to reach out to a coach from Colorado but I'm not sure if they'll ever respond.
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
I'm planning to learn stuff about oceanography, fossils, and more water, yay for the third time!

Wyoming Div B is Riverton MS, but you're probably talking about Div C, and I have no clue either lol

I’m not sure if I missed something, but will there be practice time for flying events? If so, when?

Practice flights for Wright Stuff and Elastic Launched Glider will be available on Saturday ONLY. Flights can be performed in the morning before the events begin (exact times TBD by the supervisors).

Last year, teams had to sign up for events/science demos on Friday. Will there be an online sign-up form this year? If so, when will it be available?

Thanks!


Additional fun activities for the weekend will continue to pop up on our website over the next week or so, so I'd check in regularly! A lot of fun things will be open-house or self-guided items, so they won't have availability issues. The few ones that have signup components will be posted on the website as well, and we hope to be able to increase capacity of the activities as demand requires.

So, since the first events are 7-8 am, I guess the flying practice will be at 5 or 6 am? My flying team is in an event that first hour.

They used to have testing Friday. That was a lot simpler, and did not require the kids to get up so early.

Totally agree. Even harder for kids from west coast. They have a time difference of 3 hours, which means kids need to get up 2 or 3 am their west coast time.
