Events You Wish Science Olympiad Had

Postby geminicross » March 31st, 2012, 4:05 pm

Do you have any ideas for Science Olympiad, or any events you wish Science Olympiad had?
What would be the rules for this event, and how would it be run?

Process of elimination, where you are given hints about stuff (eg. Whodunit) and find the answer.
I would own this event.

Is that science? I suppose it involves logic and deductive reasoning...isn't this somewhat covered in Crime Busters? But without the science?

I'd like to see a cognitive science event. The problem is it doesn't really fit into any of the five major areas of science according to Science Olympiad.

IDK, Not in Crime Busters.
This is more of a study event, you take clues from what you read, and apply it to questions involving elimination.
I'm really bad at explaining things. :roll:

I wish there was a purely math event, not just Technical Problem Solving and Fermi Questions.

I would like a psychology based event.... It could also branch out into stuff like game theory, evolution, or some other people based science subjects. It would be run as a study event, and possibly there would be some books to read BEFORE comp. that you would have to answer Q's on.

Also I wish the rest of the country had Heredity (BEST EVENT) so that I had people to talk to about it :geek:

Can you tell what my fav. area of science is :lol:

Edit: Or is this to abstract an area of science for SciOly? Any opinions?

Yeah, of the trial events, I would love to both compete in that and Nuclear Science Lab.

I would also love to see an event about digital logic and electronics.
