Students must bring something to write with.
This event is typically done as either stations or as a sit down test, where all the stations have been copied into a test book. Teams will answer questions and be presented with information in the form of pictures, graphs, charts, written descriptions, etc. which they will the be asked to use science process skills to analyze (make calcuations, make hypotheses and predictions, create graphs or charts, etc). The topic for the 2018 tournament season is the ecology and biomes of North American deserts and grasslands.
High score wins. Questions will have pre-assigned point values. Predetermined questions will be used to break ties.
