Is the subtopic for Dynamic Planet next year going to be glaciers again? It makes sense since they've been going off of two-year rotations but I heard somewhere that they might change it to one-year rotations.

It's most likely going to change completely, probably to fish or something b/c the topic is saltwater next year unless it somehow doesn't change

we'll find out at sosi, but i hope they change it to 1 year rotations so that i can do tectonics again.

is it looking like indoor bottle rockets will replace fermi? The SOSI schedule has Indoor Bottle Rocket as an event

Yeah, indoor bottle rockets will probably be replacing Fermi next year.

SOSI isn't final...there's still hope

What do you think of bottle rockets? Don't know how to feel about it being a Div C event.

What do you guys want to replace Fermi? And I'm not too sure about indoor bottle rockets being an actual event for Division C

What else is there that could replace Fermi? The only other option is Technical Problem Solving, which I personally think probably could be done well, but historically it hasn't been well-received.

What about code analysis? Personally I think it would be better then idbr for c.

Code Analysis isn't an inquiry event, and if an based on coding is wanted, Source Code is a much better option.

I can't answer some of those, but the topics for Anatomy are skeletal, muscular, and integumentary. The topic for Disease is not likely to be anything because they removed the topic this year, why would they put it back? Topic for Water Quality should be saltwater. And unless they make Dynamic Planet a one-year rotation which there is a chance of, it's glaciers again.
Last year I knew stuff about rocks, minerals, experiments, and ecosystems, yay!
Now I know stuff about amphibians, reptiles, water, and more experiments, yay again!
I'm planning to learn stuff about oceanography, fossils, water, and birds, yay for the third time!
