So far, I've been told that these are the events that may be replacing it. Some are more likely than others to replace it but it's still possible
Green Generation
Crave a Wave
Awesome Aquifers
Ecology
Just wondering on your thoughts on what might be replacing it
Green Generation has a 98% chance of replacing Water Quality. Crave the Wave is also becoming an event but it is replacing Shock Value. Aquifers and Ecology will probably not become events (but Ecology might replace Green Generation after it's been there for 2 or 3 years)

And 96% of statistics are made up on the spot (but I would agree on the estimation of probability).

I'm planning on doing the protein modeling event next year, and I was wondering if anyone knew where I could buy minitoobers to practice with.
If you did it would be a great help
Thanks
Looking forward to anatomy, protein, fossils, and optics (NYS trial) this year!

I believe they have like this toy for little kids which has more than enough mini-tubers in it. Id look around Toys R Us.... or you could always buy it online.

Yeah, that sounds right...I would think Awesome Aquifers might come back in 2015-2016 after a three year absence, maybe replacing Dynamic Planet or something? But yeah, Green Generation should replace WQ. Does anyone know if it is a Division C event or not?

Thank you chalker, but the shipping cost $22.33 on an $8 item :o , so I was forced to decline what looked like quite a useful kit :(
I still appreciate you helping, I think I might try Bazinga's suggestion.

Green Generation is a C, yes.
And Awesome Aquifers will *likely* not replace Dynamic Planet. It has been around for years and it has a 2 year rotation with 4 different topics, making it a very easy earth science event to keep around.

Previously on this post i read that adding Trajectory and Its about time is 'indefinate' for the moment. Is there any chance they could bring back optics for division C next year? Cuz thats one of the best physics events, and Its about time ist REALLY a physics event... more like history and a little bit of simple tech but thats all... no phun physics to bohr the hell out of me... lol jk.
