yea, they had a station at my regionals with like 5 different tools/other stuff. we got 3 of them but 2 of them we didn't know, so i think for one of them we put what ever was on the label(and i think it was the serial number so it was like 328u4235235) for the other one we put something like" the glass thing that's used to do what it does." lol
i thought bio was run pretty poorly. The stations weren't in order so me and my partner kept writing the answers under the wrong station on the answer sheet and in one of my folders there were two stations so my partner and i were like flipping out to finish. That fish classification thing was soo long because there were other questions in the station besides the like 10 classification ones and I had to walk across the room to throw out my pH paper (during the 7 minutes we had to complete all the questions)
Events this year: Picture This Forensics Disease I am extremely mad that Experimental is not at regionals!
sources... no but try a life science textbook for things like food chains. I also found that studying biomes and climographs helps. We actually had a section at states on matching climographs to biomes. On the topic of states, ours were well run, but it was the exact same as last year, word for word
