 OrnithologyCore KnowledgeParticipants will be assessed on their knowledge of North American birds.
CollapseCategory: Physical Science & Chemistry
 Crave the WaveLabGiven a scenario, a collection of evidence, and possible suspects, students will perform a series of tests that along with other evidence will be used to solve a crime.
 Crime BustersCore KnowledgeTeams identify and classify fossils and demonstrate their knowledge of ancient life by completing tasks related to interpretation of past environments and ecosystems, adaptations and evolutionary relationships, and use of fossils in dating and correlating rock units.
 Food ScienceHybridParticipants will answer questions on food chemistry with a focus on fermentation and pickling. In addition, participants will build a salinometer/hydrometer capable of measuring salt compositions between 1-10% (mass/volume)
 Sounds of MusicHybridParticipants compete in activities and answer questions about mass, density, number density, area density, concentration, pressure, and buoyancy.
