Hey fellow users,
I was wondering what events you guys were thinking are going to happen next year in the 2019-2020 season for both Division B and Division C. Thanks!!
Division C - Northeast Ohio
Gravity Vehicle
Machines
Detector Building
Circuit Lab (Maybe)

Expected changes:
- A&P returns to whatever systems it had in 2016
- Herpetology -> Ornithology
- Water Quality focus changes to saltwater or estuaries, something like that
- Dynamic Planet topic probably changes to Freshwater
- Astronomy topic will change, details unknown but I expect star and planet formation may return
- Meteorology topic changes to Severe Storms
- Solar System -> Reach for the Stars
- Thermodynamics -> Simple Machines (B)/Compound Machines (C)
- Potions and Poisons -> Can't Judge A Powder
- Chemistry Lab topic probably becomes Acids and Bases, & Aqueous Solutions
- Battery Buggy -> Mousetrap Vehicle
- Mousetrap Vehicle -> Gravity Vehicle
- Mission Possible -> probably Robot Arm
- Mystery Architecture and Fermi Questions will almost certainly rotate out, but I have no idea what will replace them

Dynamic Planet topic probably changes to Freshwater
I thought that the DP topics generally don't change until after 2 years... :?

Yeah, DP isn't going to change this rotation. Plus, and some additional formatting suggestions, add the events that aren't going to change in and separate it into div C and B
Ohayo!
Dynamic Planet, Protein Modeling, Fast Facts, Thermodynamics
Dynamic Planet, Compound Machines, Chem Lab, WaQua (maybe), Ornith (maybe)

One year rotations were the plan at some point recently. They were originally going to implement that in 2018 but didn't do so, so I suspect they'll do it next season.

Didn't have time for formatting, I wrote it on my phone.

I am not an official source and I don't know for sure myself, but I think the topic will be staying the same.

Expected changes:
- Mission Possible -> probably Robot Arm
I believe this may still be up in the air. I was told at one point that some "throwback" options such as Robot Ramble were under consideration.
