Open to writing Rocks and/or Ornithology for 2021-2022 season, based in PA for supervising/proctoring.

Graduated '20 after competing in Ohio for 6 years. When I supervise, I try to post histos and an ES review if there is a forum page. Otherwise, I update the scilympiad introduction with the histos after awards.

Message me on Discord Axolotl#5248 to talk about ID events or exchange fossils memes!

Name + Position Average/Total Score (%) Event Takeaways
University of Texas Austin (ATX)
Co-Event Supervisor
Div C: 56.87/323 (17%)
Div B: 42.46/266 (16%)
Fossils Thank you palaeocastor for co-writing! Div B/C should have <60% of the same questions. The majority of participants split up and take the test independently; stations should vary in difficulty.

Disappeared into the scilympiad void Ornithology Obscure calls/eggs should be used sparingly outside of ID stations. Also, have a backup plan for audio files (now using tinyurls!).
Penn State University (SOAPS)
Primary Event Supervisor
Div C: 64.89/281.5 (23%) Fossils Thank you sundropofdew for co-writing! Reducing answer formatting and putting referenced images on every question reduces scrolling.
Penn State University (SOAPS)
Assistant Event Supervisor
Div C: 72.71/243.5 (30%) Ornithology Thank you Bea for co-writing! Asking competitors to alphabetize answers for multiple blank questions is too time consuming, it seems.

Event Supervisor
Div C: 69.38/275 (25%) Ornithology Google docs are a pain to grade :') and same day awards are stressful (last block event), sorry for contributing to the awards delay!
University of Cincinnati
Event Supervisor
Div C: 41.14/158 (26%) Fossils Self care is writing a shorter test when you know you're grading alone :D hope you still learned something even if it was pretty short!
University of Pittsburgh
Event Chair
Div B: 41.14/136 (30%) Fossils Running an invite goes hand in hand with sleep deprivation. Still worth it and fun, thanks to officers, committee, and volunteers for helping!!!
University of Pittsburgh
