COMBINING EVENTS?

Post by isaysroar » May 2nd, 2013, 4:39 pm

If you were to create a hybrid event, what two or more events would you combine to make a new event?
2013
Disease Detectives- 4th
Helicopters- 1st
Road Scholar- 5th
Write it Do it- 2nd

Trajectory and either Helicopters or Wright Stuff. This is the correct answer.

Well, Green Generation is kind of a hybrid event. .-.
I don't know what I'd combine. WIDI and Mystery Architecture (NY trial event) somehow?

Meteorology and Dynamic Planet and Keep the Heat.
It would be about The weather, Glaciers, and thermodynamics in Earth.
Aka MeteoThermoDynamic Earth
A question would be: Which type of heat transfer is limited in the Stratosphere, making a temperature inversion?
When I did Keep the Heat, the test was extremely easy at States because I did Meteorology.

Mousetrap,mission,and heli,boom,rotor,keep,and sounds. You go through your mission, and your last task activates the vehicle, which releases the heli at a certain point,the heli hits the rotor on the balcony it hits the activation button so that sand falls into the bucket,when it breaks,and it launches your keep experiment. You do it all while playing a song for sounds

That idea is pretty good... But don't leave Boomilever out!
Poor Boomilever.. the only Division B building event not in your hybrid event. :(

Well, Sounds and Rotor are not one of the cool ones :(
I don't classify them as building events since... I don't knoww.

Trajectory and most things would be excellent, except I'm fond of Trajectory/Keep the Heat. Flinging beakers of boiling water and seeing how that affects the temperature seems legit.
