The Water Quality topic is going to be Freshwater. Those events which were previously not specifically named have their old names preserved - Shock Value, Circuit Lab, Dynamic Planet (the topic is still going to be Glaciers), Heredity, and the still horribly-named Designer Genes.
The session lengths have been decreased by 15 minutes and discussion sessions added. Rules discussions for each committee. This is an interesting addition.

I wondered about that as well. My usual advice to people is that after SOSI the event list is effectively final, but I may have to change that depending on how things go this year.

It's likely a while out, but if you're in Div B it might be back before you graduate.

As someone who has been the last couple years, this is a really interesting add. There are some questions / discussions that have come up in event-specific times that would probably be better addressed during larger discussion sessions. Putting them after dinner is also nice. Sometimes going from 8am to 10pm every day can take its toll, and evening sessions are generally less crowded.

It's typically Mission -> Robot Arm -> Mission

Trajectory is in the physics rotation with Sounds of Music, Hovercraft, and potentially other events (that rotation is a mess tbh)
