Experimental Design B/C

-The path of the Administrator is beset on all sides by the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men.

-Nothing\'s gonna get deleted. We\'re gonna be like three little Fonzies here. And what\'s Fonzie like? Come on, what\'s Fonzie like?
-Cool?
-Correctamundo. And that\'s what we\'re gonna be. We\'re gonna be cool. Now, I\'m gonna count to three, and when I count three, you let go of your mouse, and back away from the keyboard. But when you do it, you do it cool. Ready? One... two... three.

Does anyone know if there's going to be any twists on it this year, or just same old ED?

This year, the event is sponsored by Jell-O, and as a result, all experiments must use either gelatin or pudding as one of the materials.

A year too late - last year, based off of glacial movement, there was an experiment involving Flubber at the Solon Invitational.

You'll just have to see when the rules come out. :)

It's pretty much the same. Minor changes regarding the statistics and stuff.

Oh that was awful- made me glad to be a writer. There really isn't too much you can do with it- I don't think it has been changed in years. On the other hand, doing experiments with Jell-O could be interesting. Maybe I'll mention it to our coach at practice later this week, see if I can get him to fall for it.

I am still trying to comprehend all of this--- at every competition (invites reg state and nats) the experiment is going to have to include Jell-O?
