I feel like this could be changed around a bit. Mostly because I don't really know how challenging the moon flight game would be (but that is definitely a fine concept to work into an event...unless you meant building it). I just figure the orbital questions to already be included in Solar Systems especially. But maybe I guess I could see another Div B event focusing on a part of astronomy not already there."Orbital Amazing" (Yes, its cheesy. But its all I could think of)
This event focus on all the stuff that Reach doesn't cover. Mostly orbits and other astrodynamics (Or something not involving memorizing conseleations). It would be seprated into a writen test, and a " moon flight" useing a game (that I found on the internet), where teams would have to try to make a moon flight using one of a mulitude of prebuilt rockets, and try to land on the moon. the test would count for 60% and the simulation would count for 40%.
Maybe not evolution.History of Science
The event would be about Pangaea and the dinosaurs, and maybe evolution?
Like Charles Darwin, Paleozoic Era, Devonian Period, Mammoths, Early Humans
Every two years they would switch Eras, like Paleozoic, Precambrian, Mesozoic, or Cenozoic.
Also students would learn species of plants and animals from each era.
They would have to provide a brief summary of each period in the era.
I second the fluid dynamics idea! Perfect for scioly!Interesting….Fifth the math event.
But on topic:
Fluids--One of those things with a hole in it and the water leaks out, part of the competition is to build one that makes the water go the correct distance. And a test
I can picture the event now.
Students bring a bucket or similar container with a hole (or holes) at the bottom.
A target container is set up some distance away and below the hole in the student’s bucket.
This distance can vary as competition increases. A set amount of water is provided to all teams (again this can vary from competition to competition or can be decided by the students). The team who “catches” the most water in the target container wins that part of the event.
Add a test portion on fluid dynamics and you have an event
I like this idea.I know this is not about particular new ideas but just bringing the notion to ya! They should have a fun invitational just for the old events to test people's remaining knowledge or skills for that event! I know I would go to that. It could have stuff like Towers, Bottle Rockets, Optics, Junk Yard Challenge, and etc.
