History

Colorado is a fairly big state for SO. Trial events are nonexistent here, though regionals and the state competition do all 23 events and they follow the rules fairly well.

Past State Champions

In B a school does very well for years but then a new school comes and takes 1st. In C it started off with Ft. Collins but then Poudre got 1st and kept it that way for years.

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

Crimebusters- well run but ALWAYS bring droppers with you; they don't have any even though it says so in the rules

Ex. design- very open ended; nothing really specific when it comes to the experiment

WIDI- no Legos or any other building kits here; styrofoam and pipe cleaners are favorites

Rocks/Fossils- many stations; identification is HEAVILY tested

Food Science- always two or more labs at regionals; states is always a written test

Tech events- relatively easy compared to other states but make sure you're in the first tier: almost half of all things entered are not in this
