Division C – High School at the Arkansas Science Olympiad State Tournament (2022-2023)
Anatomy and Physiology: Participants will be assessed on their understanding of the anatomy and physiology for the human Respiratory, Digestive, and Immune systems.
Astronomy: Teams will demonstrate an understanding of Stellar Evolution & Variability.
Bridge: Teams will design and build a Bridge (Structure) meeting requirement specified in these rules to achieve the highest structural efficiency.
Cell Biology: This event integrates content knowledge and process skills in the areas of cell biology and cellular biochemistry.
Chem Lab: Teams will complete one or more tasks and answer a series of questions involving the science processes of chemistry focused in the areas of Oxidation/Reduction and Periodicity.
Detector Building: Teams will build a durable Mass/Force Sensing Device that will accurately measure and display both voltage and actual masses of different solid samples ranging from 20 to 1,000 grams.
Disease Detectives: Students will use investigative skills in the scientific study of disease, injury, health and disability in populations or groups of people.
Dynamic Planet: Students will use process skills to complete tasks related to Earth’s fresh waters.
EnvironmentalChemistry: This event will focus on fresh water (e.g., residential, industrial or natural), the identified pages of The Clean Water Act (1972 & 1977), wastewater operator’s certification manual (Indiana March 2018 revision) and its applications, various testing of particular analytes using standardized curves (either interpreted or created), and stabilization ponds, & introduction to the National Pretreatment Program.
Experimental Design: This event will determine a participant’s ability to design, conduct and report the findings of an experiment entirely on-site.
FermiQuestions: Teams provide answers to a series of “Fermi Questions”; science related questions that seek fast, rough estimates of a quantity, which is either difficult or impossible to measure directly.
Forestry: Event Description Coming Soon!
GreenGeneration: Students will demonstrate an understanding of general ecological principles, the history and consequences of human impact on our environment, solutions to reversing trends and sustainability concepts.
It’s About Time: Teams will answer questions related to time and they may construct and bring one non-electrical device that triggers a single signal to occur three times at equally spaced time intervals.
Remote Sensing: Participants will use remote sensing imagery, data, and computational process skills to complete tasks related to climate change processes in the Earth system.
Rocks and Minerals: Teams will demonstrate their knowledge of rocks and minerals.
Scrambler: Teams design, build, and test a mechanical device, which uses the energy from a falling mass to transport an egg along a straight track as quickly as possible and stop as close to the center of a Terminal Barrier (TB) without breaking the egg.
Trajectory: Prior to the competition, teams will design, construct and calibrate a single device capable of launching projectiles onto a target and collect data regarding device parameters and performance.
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 the description.
