yes, we r that big, if u look at a map u can see that... and u can see why San Diego and San Francisco dont want to travel that far for the state comp so they divide it in half, and thats why only one from each goes so at CA state competitions it first or go home...

like I repplied to somebody else, knowledge is more important, money means nothing if you don't qualify, it how determined the students/coaches are that really helps...

I'm from SoCal. I'm pretty sure it's the time you put into studying, not the funding, although if you don't have enough funding, you don't really have that much to study.

This great thing called the internet doesn't need funding from your school. You have plenty to study even if you don't get funding.

Building events = the only events that require money. Lets be generous about this and say you need 100 bucks per building event. Do a few bake sales, voila.

And a budget like 100 bucks per building event would probably be for a team thats actually dedicated and competitive, they don't all cost that much.

And the internet is free...you do NOT need money to google. Only time and dedication.

Gee... our team goes through money really fast... not from the school though, just our own money.... haha, wow... :roll:
i guess if we HAD to we could get by without it... true though the web is completely free (ok not completely if u want to get technical...)
No matter what the experiment's result, there will always be someone eager to:(a) misinterpret it(b) fake it, or (c) believe it supports his own pet theory.

I don't think funding should hamper your team's success. My school hates Science Olympiad (for an explosion incident regarding unsafe hexane use) so they only gave us about $600 for the entire year, including registration fees. We managed to get 3rd place twice, and 2nd place in the last two years, regardless (Norcal).

Online websites are usually really cheap, but I think that my team and our coach end up fronting a lot of the cost for building supplies. For example, I used my own money to buy suppliues for Mousetrap Vehicle, It's About Time (last year), and we plan on using everyday objects for Mission Possible.

I'm reluctant to talk about the specifics in case someone from the School District gets wind of what actually happened and my school gets in trouble o___o

Your school doesn't even know what happened?
