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.

Wow... I'm gonna have to look into that... it's crazy. I never really checked out the shipping costs and just assumed they'd be very nominal.

Doubt it. You should ask chalker. It's About Time sounds like a fun event though, kinda like compound machines :D, so I want it next year. The amount of physics on it would be determined by who writes your test though i guess.
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
Before you criticize a man, walk a mile in his shoes. That way you'll be a mile away and he'll be shoeless.
You should only create problems, that only you know solutions to.

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

Trust me, it's not going to happen.

That's right, it's about time it came back! Sorry, I had to at least once. I'm personally interested in it. Though, I looked at the past rules, and I hope the rules for the study portion are slightly more outlined for next year. After looking into the event, a friend and I decided to make something to keep time for a final project in physics. Bright side after competing is at least one can still do scioly stuff in multiple ways.

Honestly, I don't know why people dislike the study portion of It's About Time. It appeals to me as a former quiz bowler and Fermi participant. Sure, it's random, and people can't possibly know everything, but I think it just helps you be a more well-rounded student. Admittedly, I'm not competing, so I can't say this from a competitor's point of view, but either way, the openendedness of the event makes it more exciting, IMHO.

Speaking of which, is there an official list of the Div B events scheduled for next year?

Nothing "official" but according to the coaches' institute schedule which is probably pretty reliably correct (at least this late in the game):

Anatomy (Immune, Integumentary)
Disease Detectives (Population Growth)
Green Generation
Entomology
Bio Process Lab

Dynamic Planet (Oceanography)
Fossils
Meteorology (Climate)
Solar System
Road Scholar

Crave the Wave
Simple Machines
Trajectory
Crime Busters
Can’t Judge a Powder

Bridge Building
Elastic Launched Glider
Robo-Cross
Wheeled Vehicle

Experimental Design
Write It Do It
Bottle Rocket

Thank ye kindly.

I tried making sense of the coaches' clinic schedule, but I never seem to understand it completely.
