Re: Feynman's BONGOS: A Side Event (for PACE and maybe HSNCT

I think flashcards are awesome, but as you said, if you rely too much on them, then you'll just be playing the membowl game. I don't know if this is just me, but I tend to remember the stuff I read in Wikip...

Science is a weak spot for many teams, especially for those around the novice high school level, so having a s...
