Please look over the preliminary list of events we have posted.

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.

We don't have a set deadline, but SSSS will probably end sometime in August :mrgreen:

Hey guys, the submissions we've received so far are looking great- keep them rolling in! One thing I would like to note is that for Experimental Design, due to the simplicity of just making an experimental problem, we ask that you also submit an exemplary sample writeup to go with your problem. It would be kind of like a key to a test event. Thanks!

7500 words for a building guide? Isn't that rather asking too much? I mean, Aia's Boomilever guide, which we can all universally say was helpful, was only 4,984 words. Most wikis on build events don't approach that level of word count.

I would support perhaps 3,500 words.

You heard wrong;)
So when will the official events for 2014-15 be released?
