Use the forums? Create practice tests and question marathons?

All of the above. We get together and search up stuff on the Internet together, we read and tab books together, etc. At our school it's an elective class, so we automatically have it for around an hour a day.

We do everything possible on scioly, as well as wikipedia and google ( which have been our best friend) and quizlet, google drive, and all that kinda stuff. We meet for ~12 hours a week. ( Not everyone is there all 12 hrs, people drop in and out)

As for official practices, we have 4 1-hour individual event timeslots Monday-Friday for most of the study events (during which time we take practice tests, have a PowerPoint, get handouts, etc.), and most of the building event practices occur on the weekend. For example, I had practice for disease detectives every Tuesday at 3:00 and boomilever every Saturday at noon.

Other than that, I personally do a lot of individual studying. I know that my teammates occasionally met to collaborate on a cheat sheet, or possibly do an extra WIDI exercise.

To be honest, I've hardly seen people from my town on SciOly since the new forum has been implemented.

Usually 2-4 times a week. Twice a week, we go to the library and study, and twice a week, we do things that my coach plans.

Hey goofyfoofer.
Correcting your previous statement, we meet with our coach twice a week. Then there are optional lunch meetings. We don't really meet in the library, but that's a good idea... :twisted:

I forgot to mention that I also had set up a class on Quizlet (although I only have about 5 of my teammates in it, and they hardly use it) and I'm currently trying to fix it up for next year. I think I also saw classes for Pilgrimage Homeschool and GSMST. I didn't bother trying to explore them at all, but it doesn't matter because once I'm done fixing my class, it will be the best of them all.

But yeah, Quizlet is really good for learning the vocab for an event (which I always have lots of when I start to study for an event).

So our school practices with after school clubs 1 hour for each event on different days Monday,Tuesday etc.... and we have Saturday events. Also we study at home and the week before a competition we usually have Friday studies and we stay there til 8:00 or so studying different events and eating pizza :)
