That's around what we got, around the 4-6 ballpark. I'm hoping that will change.I wish my team had done better than 4 words.
The bolded parts of the rules include that the supervisor will provide writing implements (dunno why this one is necessary), and that words may be broken into parts unrelated to the term. Apparently examples of the latter are given on the website; last year, the national website's FAQ clarified that breaking words into unrelated parts was indeed allowed. Also bolded is that the words will be selected from the six content areas of Science Olympiad, whatever those are.Just outta curiosity, did anything change from last year rules. I really wouldn't know what they would change if they changed anything.
