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 dont have any even though it says so in the rules

ex. desgin- very open ended nothing really specific when it comes to the experiment

WIDI- no legos or any other building kits here, here styrofoam and pipe cleaners are favorites

rocks/fossils- many stations identification is HEAVLY 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 your in the first teir almost half of all things enters are not in this
