Post date: Mar 6, 2018 9:26:27 PM
Anatomy & Physiology
Understand the anatomy of the human body systems: cardiovascular, lymphatic, excretory.
Teams will construct a vehicle that uses electrical energy as its sole means of propulsion, quickly travels a specified distance, and stops as close as possible to the Finish Point.
Prior to the competition, teams will design and build a Boomilever meeting requirements specified in the rules to achieve the highest structural efficiency.
Teams must participate in activities and answer questions about mass, density, number density, area density, concentration, pressure, and buoyancy
Teams will demonstrate their knowledge on DC circuit concepts and DC circuit analysis.
Given a scenario, a collection of evidence, and possible suspects, teams will perform a series of tests that along with other evidence will be used to solve a crime.
Teams will use investigative skills in the scientific study of disease, injury, health and disability in populations or groups of people
Teams will demonstrate their ability to design, conduct and report the findings of an experiment conducted on site. Fossils
Teams will demonstrate their knowledge of fossilized animals and plants.
Teams will demonstrate their knowledge on how to make a computer game in scratch.
Teams will demonstrate their knowledge on genetics and molecular biology.
Teams will demonstrate an understanding of the Glaciers. I’m willing to give someone a hand with this one since I’m fascinated by glaciers after I saw some last summer.
Elastic Launched Glider
Prior to the competition teams design, construct and test free flight rubber-powered glider to achieve maximum time aloft.
Teams will demonstrate their knowledge of amphibians and reptiles.
Teams will use scientific process skills to demonstrate an understanding of meteorological concepts focusing on everyday weather.
At the beginning of the event, teams will be given a bag of building materials and instructions for designing and building a device that can be tested.
Potion & Poisons
This event is about chemical properties and effects of specified toxic and therapeutic chemical substances, with a focus on household and environmental toxins or poisons.
Teams will answer interpretive questions that may use one or more state highway maps, USGS topographic maps, Internet-generated maps, a road atlas or satellite/aerial images.
Prior to the competition, teams design, build, and test a roller coaster track to guide a vehicle that uses gravitational potential energy as its sole means of propulsion to travel as close as possible to a target time.
Teams will demonstrate an understanding and knowledge of the solar system. I will again be coaching this event.
Teams must construct an insulated device prior to the tournament that is designed to retain heat and complete a written test on thermodynamic concepts. Water Quality
Students will demonstrate an understanding and knowledge on indicators affecting estuarine and marine water quality.
Write it Do it
One student will write a description of an object and how to build it, and then the other student will attempt to construct the object from this description.
