The yearly thread! :D
From the SOSI, which is our best guess at finding the event list each year:
Unome wrote: Ok, so this is what the 2018 events seem to be (for those who don't want to decipher the schedule and read all the other relevant documents):

Biology
Anatomy & Physiology B/C (Respiratory, Digestive, Immune)
Disease Detectives B/C (Foodborne Illness)
Ecology B/C
Herpetology B/C (replaces Invasives)
Microbe Mission B/C

Earth Science:
Astronomy C (topic: my best guess is Type II SNe & Stellar Evolution, or something with Galaxies)
Dynamic Planet B/C (Glaciers)
Meteorology B (Climate)
Remote Sensing C (topic unknown)
Road Scholar B
Rocks and Minerals B/C
Solar System B (topic?)

Physics:
Hovercraft B/C
Keep the Heat B/Thermodynamics C (replaces Wind Power)
Optics B/C

Chemistry:
Crime Busters B
Forensics C
Chemistry Lab C (topic: Thermodynamics & something else, possibly Aqueous Solutions or Acids & Bases)
Materials Science C
Potions and Poisons B (replaces Food Science)

Technology:
Battery Buggy B (replaces Scrambler)
Mousetrap Vehicle C (replaces Electric Vehicle)
Wright Stuff B
Helicopters C
Towers B/C
Roller Coaster B (replaces Mission Possible)
Mission Possible C (replaces Robot Arm C)

Inquiry:
Experimental Design B/C
Write It Do It B/C
Fast Facts B
Undecided Event B (It's hard to read the schedule, but it looks like either Bottle Rockets, Protein Modeling, or Sounds of Music)
Game On C...
Fermi Questions C
EDIT: Hmmm, with the Soinc.org update we may no longer have access to the schedule...

Nvm, we still have it, https://www.soinc.org/sites/default/fil ... 122016.pdf It's also been updated since Unome last looked at it.

EDIT 2: On the bright side, #FermiQuestions is finally happening...on the other hand Game On is staying for another year...

Considering its prevalence in many states and tournaments this year (e.g. SoCal, MIT), I'm thinking Fermi Questions is a good bet to return next year.

It also looks like they're seriously considering indoor Bottle Rockets, which would be interesting.

...and Game On is staying? Whatever happened to the vaunted switch to everything being two years?

Whatever. Fermi Questions is Confermied!

/me goes to twitter

Edit: Yeah I have no idea what's going on with that last Div B Inquiry event. Also, for those who are unaware, this is the document that we're talking about.

Most likely in 2018-2019; Materials Science is going into its second year next year.
