Mystery architecture?
...didn't see that coming.

I'll have to look over the event and see how it works (what kind of room we need and when it can be scheduled for our invitational). I didn't really think it was in serious contention of becoming an event (though I guess I should have known, seeing as it was in New York this year).

Everything else seems to be as expected though. Looks like they're sticking with the two year rotation in Dynamic Planet. Also I think Physical Properties is a new topic for Chem Lab; I've never heard of it before.

Hmmm. Surprised you missed that. I checked a certain website after our lunch last week, and that was posted.
Tables, Lab tables or flat, level desks will work.

Well, I guess at least that means I don't have to go and put up signs for Bottle Rocket while it's below freezing outside :) Hopefully we can get the Auditorium for Hovercraft (it wasn't available this year), then we can use H103 for this, and we can have spectators for Hovercraft.

Physical Properties sounds kind of like it's similar to MatSci

tfw Chem Lab is just Thermo and MatSci combined

I'm kinda glad I'm getting out before Chem Lab stops being a math event.

this:
>> Chem Lab is just Thermo and MatSci combined<<
I am curious why Chem Lab have thermo and physical properties as the focus next year if Thermo and Mat Sci are in the rotation at the same time? Why not have the Chem Lab topics be something different?

We actually had Mystery Design in NY this year - basically a 2-part event, with a technical drawing that was impounded and an onsite build. Is Mystery Architecture very similar?

Excited for Fermi next year. I pan on doing it. Pretty hyped.

Mystery Architecture is different. On site you're given a bunch of materials and you have to do something with them (build the tallest tower, widest bridge, raft that holds the most pennies, etc.)

Although, I do agree that two years is needed to have a better comprehension of the subject, I would like to have experienced fresh waters at the same time.

The SOSI schedule was updated on the 20th to include Mystery Architecture, so that's certainly looking more firm at this point.

I would like to see them allow micro controllers/ electrical components for non propulsion systems, for example distance measurement and braking.
