OMG! That's the test from the invitational! LOL!

Thanks, Froggie, but it's completely worthless to me...

Anybody out there have a real test to share? Please...

Thanks

Our team was wondering if we could use a multimeter in the competition or are we supposed just use a conductivity reader such as one with a bulb indicator.

Also, we want to practice the lab portion. Where do we get out chemicals/materials and how do we dispose of them? How are you guys doing your lab practice?

I just ran this at Ohio State... My answer to your question is "It is up to the individual running the competition. Check with them." At OSU, I saw several different types of conductivity testers. In my assessment, they had to be 9 volt or less. They had to say somewhere on the device "conductivity."

it's a bit hard to practice labs on your own, but since my school has a stock of invys, I just copy the labs off of them and basically find the materials.

Thanks for your help! We will ask the supervisors and bring both to the competition.

Hi guys,
Are the household chemicals/toxic living organisms for next year's PP event going to be the same as the chemicals/organisms covered this year? Thanks!
