Pentathlon B

Post by Jim_R » June 11th, 2009, 7:29 pm

Discussion for...Pentathlon B.
-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

A few things:

Can we not fill this thread with complaints about how much you hate this event?

Instead mabye see if you can come up with practice ideas and try to tell people tasks/questions they used at your competitions.

Well, it would be fairly easy to come up with questions for the knowledge part of the exam:
Sort rocks by type
Sort elements by Solid, Liquid, gas
Dichotomous Key
Cladogram etc.

and then physical tasks:
jump rope
mini-obstacle course
shoot a basketball
old tasks from previous competitions

Just time yourself and try to get better i guess.

Well, we can't post in that one now, can we? If you want to you can create a new one in General Chat, that's probably where it would fit the most.

I think we ought to make a list of science topics that could be covered. Here's some off the top of my head, just keep adding to it.


Diseases
Famous Scientists
Famous Inventions
Identifying Rocks
Kingdoms(Life)
Rock Cycle
States of Matter
Water Cycle
Waves
