Rip Fossils :( Also do we know anything about topic changes next year? Like is Dynamic's topic still staying oceanography

99% sure they switched it to 1 year rotations, so it should be Tectonics or Earth's Water (if that is still a thing).

I mean, I know they’re different, but it’s still kind of an overload of electronics/environment. Plus, those electronic events seem like a pay-to-win, at least at first glance.
Honestly, if it hasn't changed too much from when I did it in 2018, Remote Sensing is kinda like a mix of electronics and environment, so I guess there is some balance there haha? And if it stays a pure test like it was last time, then I don't see how it can really be pay to win, but I understand your concerns with the other two.

I'm almost certain they've switched to one year topic rotations for Dynamic Planet, since it was glaciers last year and oceanography this year, and I don't think they would really go back to two so quickly. As for what the new topic is, I'm not sure. Last time it was oceans in 2016, it became tectonics in 2017 and 2018, so maybe that? But 2018 was so not long ago, so idk if they would go back to THAT so quickly when you will have ppl who were freshmen in 2018 doing it as seniors.

But that didn't stop them from going to oceanography when they had people who did oceanography as eighth graders doing it as seniors (like me!) so idk really. All conjecture.

And yeah mega rip to Road Scholar. Very saddening to see D: at least I got to do it for one year haha. I am bummed out that I'm missing the return of rocks and minerals, but I've known that that would happen for years, so it's not so bad lol. Definitely interested to see what they do with Detector and Ping Pong after a year in competition lol.

Should be tectonics. According to the proctor last year, they switched to one year rotation to match subjects with Meteorology B.

But since tectonics was in a couple of years ago, wouldn't it cycle to one of the other topics?
brokenhearted because not every edition of my oceano textbook is by trujeelo :(

There seems to be only 3 Dynamic topics: Glaciers (2019), Oceanography (2020), and Tectonics (2021)
