Scioly.org Monthly Event Challenges: August 2020

Post by sciolyperson1 » August 15th, 2020, 11:39 am

Today, Scioly.org is announcing its first Scioly.org Monthly Event Challenge! This month's event will run from Friday, August 21st to Monday, August 24th, opening and closing at the same time: 3:00 PM ET / 12:00 PM PT.

Register and read the rules here before Wednesday, August 19th (3:00 PM EST / 12:00 PM PST). We will be using the new Scilympiad platform! :idea:

For August, the three events that will be run are Codebusters, Fermi Questions, and Ornithology. Codebusters will not have a timed question. Every month, three (possibly different) events will be run. One of the three may be a throwback event, in this case, Fermi Questions (from 2019)!

While this is a solo competition, be sure to share it with your teammates and encourage them to participate!

Codebusters: The test will use national level rules. The test will not have a timed question.

Fermi Questions: The test will use 2019 Science Olympiad rules.

Ornithology: Online binders will be allowed (up to 450 pages, which is equivalent to a 2" binder).

Each of the tests will be 60 minutes long.

There was also a typo in the email: "Your first and last name should both your Scioly.org Username." should be corrected to "Your first and last name should both be your Scioly.org Username." (ex: Sciolyperson1 Sciolyperson1)
