At least In Wisconsin we can drop the event. Hoping code analysis or source as the extra inquiry.

Does anyone know how much (or if at all) the build portion of Sounds of Music is expected to change? Is it projected to be another pitch test thing or will it be a song like 2014? Any insight will be appreciated! Thanks

Probably a pitch test because they changed the event to make it more objective

It has only been 1 year. The topics are likely to change from freshwater to marine estuaries next year.

Unome wrote:Expected changes:
- A&P returns to whatever systems it had in 2016
- Herpetology -> Ornithology
- Water Quality focus changes to saltwater or estuaries, something like that
- Dynamic Planet topic probably changes to Freshwater
- Astronomy topic will change, details unknown but I expect star and planet formation may return
- Meteorology topic changes to Severe Storms
- Solar System -> Reach for the Stars
- Thermodynamics -> Simple Machines (B)/Compound Machines (C)
- Potions and Poisons -> Can't Judge A Powder
- Chemistry Lab topic probably becomes Acids and Bases, & Aqueous Solutions
- Battery Buggy -> Mousetrap Vehicle
- Mousetrap Vehicle -> Gravity Vehicle
- Mission Possible -> probably Robot Arm
- Mystery Architecture and Fermi Questions will almost certainly rotate out, but I have no idea what will replace them
Is there any official list from Science Olympiad of the changes in events?
