Nope, they are EXACTLY the same, word for word.
Except that this year's topic is different, and so is the website.

will you have to make a chart in excel? i know you have to do something like make a line chart or scatter plot, but will we have to print out the raw data we find? like just put it into a normal excel chart?

Yes, you will have to use excel for your data. However, there will also be several questions that you will do in word.

If only they where doing amphibians and reptiles this year.

Pretty much they give you a topic that can be researched on nasa.gov
Like on one of the practice tests, I had to find some successfull Apollo mision stats, and plot them, such as the launch date, how close they got to the moon, or weither they were successfull or not. But you have to chart it in a specific format, like line graph or line on two axis. Also there will be five short-answer questions.

You really can't study for this event, so all you can really do is practice. Read through the rulles several times, and before long you'll be great at it! ;)
