So is Heredity considered the replacement for Microbe Mission?

Yes, if you look through I am pretty sure microbes won't be there. It also has been in two years, so I think that is the time to cycle in the next bio event.
B: Crave the Wave, Environmental Chemistry, Robo-Cross, Meteorology, Physical Science Lab, Solar System, DyPlan (E and V), Shock Value
C: Microbe Mission, DyPlan (Earth's Fresh Waters), Fermi Questions, GeoMaps, Gravity Vehicle, Scrambler, Rocks, Astronomy
Grad: Writing Tests/Supervising (NY/MI)

Metric-Compute
Heredity-Microbe

The Monday evening time slot is the regular Boomilever event session where the rules are explained. There is a conference room set aside for the week for coaches to practice building the balsa wood events. Then in the Thursday evening time slot all the devices that coaches build during the week are tested in a mini competition.

Do you know by any chance if Boomilever for Division B in New Jersey will be Elevated Bridge? Because even though it should cycle for 2012-2013 I have never seen a year when Division B in New Jersey has ever done Boomilever. When Division C has done it, Division B has done Elevated Bridge. Any clarifications?

That would be a decision made by the New Jersey State Director.

No! Aquifers is gone! And so is Trebs! I'm excited for these other events though, namely Metric Mastery and Sounds of Music.
Science, yeah!

Made a new team. 7th place at NH states. Officially the champions of Vermont.

2015-2016 Events:
Air Trajectory, It's About Time, EXPD, and WIDI.

Out of the new ones (or ones that weren't in last year) I like Shock Value, Sounds of Music, and Heredity. Metric Mastery seems interesting but I doubt I'd ever do it.
