Potions experiments

Questions:
I am first time Science Olympiad Coach and not really sure how the experimental section works. Can you please give us examples of instructions and observation charts which will be given to students at the time of competition?
Also it will help us a lot to train them if we can have some idea about the kind of experiments they will be doing. If you can give us some examples, it will be helpful.


Answer:
Thank you for taking on the tremendous task of coaching an event. 
The Potions event powerpoint contains the lab equipment that will be used in the experimental section. The additional resource section of event description provides links to experiments that represent the level of difficulty for the students. The experimental section will be short (3-5 step experiments) with simple and detailed instructions that will enable the students to conduct the experiment in the event time frame.
