2021 Missouri State Science Olympiad Rules Clarifications
For All Events Allowing Resources:
For the 2020-2021 season, allowable resources for events are now PER TEAM MEMBER, not per team. This is to allow each team member to have full use of a complete set of allowable resources without the need to share with their partner and to have these resources available in the event that social distancing requires individual team members to be seated apart.
Clarification, February 11: This rule does NOT mean that if each team member brings in a set of event appropriate resources that the two sets of resources are required to be identical.

Seniors that are a member in good standing and meet all eligibility requirements to be a member of a school's Science Olympiad team will not lose their eligibility if they choose to graduate at the semester. Seniors who graduate at the semester may remain on their school's Science Olympiad team for the remainder of the competition season. Note that if a school does allow a graduated senior to remain on their team this individual will count toward the limit of seven seniors on a team.
Part II, the Computer Exploration portion of the event, is only to be completed with the aid of a browser-based version of Jmol found at this website: https://cbm.msoe.edu/markMyweb/jmolDesignEnvironment/#forward. Teams are NOT allowed to use the computer application version of Jmol.
There will NOT be a prebuild for protein modeling at the state tournament.
