For anything Science Olympiad-related that might not fall under a specific event or competition.

With random things scribbled in the 0.3 inch margins that my printer likes to add for me. Also because I printed them, then realized there was something else I had to add. Crime Busters and Forensics allow you to bring a magnifying glass, which helps a lot, hehe.

No, bring bifocals, so you don't have to keep switching glasses to glance up at the slideshow(for some tests) and back down at your tiny-font cheatsheet.

There was a meme, I think two years ago, on the FB scioly meme page, that had a cheatsheet where someone printed in blue ink, and then printed over that inn red ink (cyan and magenta if you want to get technical) and joked about bringing glasses with one red lens and one blue lens.

I found it absolutely hilarious, and I'm still not sure if anything except the "spirit of the competition" rule prohibits this.

How do you guys organize your information?
I am using boxes for Designer Genes but I am struggling. The problem with boxes is that it leaves empty space because the amount of content for each box in same row has to be similar.
Also, how do you guys manage to put so much information on 2 pages?
I am typing mine for Designer Genes that is almost 2 pages (no biotech info on it yet).
Would point 6 font work? I am at point 8. I am concerned I wouldn't be able to read it.

My cheat sheets are 6 point font but it is printed as 2 pages on one page. I can read it, so 6 point font is readable

My Designer Genes notes are also boxes. They're size 4 font and I also have handwritten info on them.
Having events early in the alphabet is scary, because you don't want to be the first to disappoint your team...

We've been making our cheat sheets with either 3-5 pt font, as well as bringing a magnifer sheet protector that helps even more.
