Building guides are different from notes. Notes are for study/lab events. Build guides are less constricted; 1000 words would be fine, as long as you have diagrams and clear, concise instructions, and tips if you would like to include those. However, be aware that these will be accepted based on quality. As long as you submit quality work, you should be fine.

I have a question, sorry...

If two users collaborate on writing a test/notes, would both get access to the SSS?

If you submit two total, yes. Unfortunately, we can only allow a 1:1 or lower ratio.

OK, here's a question. I wrote two tests and keys for an invitational that got cancelled due to a blizzard. Since there was no good time to reschedule it, the coaches swapped tests with each other, so my tests and keys went out to ten or so other schools and who knows if they went any further than that.

Would it be OK to submit a barely-published (but entirely written by me) test/key? Or must it be totally previously unpublished?

I did Picture This back when it was a Texas trial event and I got a big list of science words for a coach/parent. I went online, and defined all of the words and kinda made a mini dictionary. Most of the words may be easy, so I may need to update it. Does that get me into SSSS?

That should be fine :)

Send it to us through email and we'll take a look at it! If it's extensive enough I think it would be a great resource.

The thread is: http://scioly.org/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=5492
Currently the tentative list is: http://soinc.org/sites/default/files/up ... -10-14.pdf

For Dynamic specifically it is extremely likely to be oceanography because it is on a fairly set rotation (and the chart confirms this).
B: Crave the Wave, Environmental Chemistry, Robo-Cross, Meteorology, Physical Science Lab, Solar System, DyPlan (E and V), Shock Value
C: Microbe Mission, DyPlan (Earth's Fresh Waters), Fermi Questions, GeoMaps, Gravity Vehicle, Scrambler, Rocks, Astronomy
Grad: Writing Tests/Supervising (NY/MI)
