Thermodynamics is essentially identical to Keep the Heat.

What is the reasoning behind keeping Game On for another year?

Also, would Thermodynamics as an event be similar to Chem Lab having thermodynamics as a subtopic again?

The last time thermodynamics was run (2012 and 2013) it was just general thermodynamics, not one specific area of it like chem lab is

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.
Yay! Our School loves that SoCal has Fermi, and we are excited for it to be an event next year as well!!

Glad to keep Fermi next year since NY has Fermi right now. Does anyone know when Invasive Species will come back after being replaced?

Unless one of Ornithology, Forestry, or Entomology gets removed from the rotation, or each of the Bio ID events are reduced to one year rotations, then it will most likely be: Herpetology 2018-2019, Ornithology 2020-2021, Forestry 2022-2023, Entomology 2024-2025, and finally Invasive Species 2026-2027. Of course, that's also assuming no other Bio ID events are introduced into the rotation.

Wait, is Sounds of Music coming back? That'll be worrisome. The most subjective build event ever...

It was originally going to be in rotation this year, but chalker said they wanted to change some of the rules and run it as a Nationals trial this year. I'm gonna guess that if everything goes according to plan, it will replace Hovercraft in 2 years.
