Do we need to know the specific asteroids in the asteroid belt, or just the general information about the asteroid belt?
Thank you

Is Planetary science part of Solar system event? Are there any links to rules for Solar systems event?

Donna, Your webinars on planetary science are very helpful for B Science Olympiad. The student wiki does not contain useful info to help the students prepare their sheets to take into the event since ice in the solar system is such a new event. Any suggestions on an outline for the material It is scattered through so many web sites. They are only allowed 2 sheets double sided. Thanks.

Solar system has a totally new scope this year, so previous tests will not be much help. There is a test posted for 2014 for Planetary Sciences scroll down

These Webinar's are an excellent resource. I am creating a test for the 2013 competition, and as a test writer I'd love to see a set for the current year. Any chance of seeing that? Thank you so much!

Hi, Scott. You do not need to create anything. You can purchase the Coaches Manual on the CD-ROM and print out some of the past national events for your teams to practice with. The answer keys are included. The years 2006-2009 were focused on stellar evolution. The events are all constructed in a similar fashion. This of course only pertains to the Astronomy Event. It sounds like you are more involved than with just this one event - almost impossible to do if you have never even seen a Science Olympiad competition. Good luck!

There is an "event book" which is published by Science Olympiads for each of the events. You need to see that entry for "Astronomy: Type IA Supernova" and write a test strictly based on those event details.

I have been tagged to be the person who creates the tasks the students must complete in the Science Olympiad this year at our college. I have never participated in the SO nor observed the event. I have listened to the 11 part presentation here, but I am still not sure exactly what I need to create for the students. Any suggestions would be welcome.
