Info for events

State Specific Infomation

Science Word/Picture This- the words are almost always easy one so speed is the key in these events
Crime Busters- well run but ALWAYS bring droppers with you; they don't have any even though it says so in the rules
Experimental Design- very open ended; nothing really specific when it comes to the experiment
Write It Do It- no Legos or any other building kits here; styrofoam and pipe cleaners are favorites
Rocks and Minerals/Fossils- many stations; identification is heavily tested
Food Science- always two or more labs at regionals; states is always a written test
Technology events- relatively easy compared to other states, but make sure you're in the first tier; almost half of all devices entered are not in the first tier
