when my bro waz in 8th his jr high tied for 1st, one team goes to nationals and they lost by 1 gold medal to the school that went that year...


Wow. Now that's close.

Wanna know wats closer? Well not really, but ill continue my rant anyway...the AP physics teacher at our school had a tower building contest...for structural efficiency of course. This junior beat me out of first.

We tie in terms of efficiency, but his tower was lighter than mine by like .05 grams.

Ya, cause thats more important than losing a chance to go to Nats.

in california its 1st or nothing cauz our state is split so its 1 from each not 2 and there are 5 or 6 teams capable of making top 10 at nationals... at least at the south, i think there might be one in the north but i dont compete there...

LOL, my physics class had a tower project and a battery buggy project (like scrabbler without the mess after a crash... and the weight difference for that to occur would have to be less than a quarter kg difference, shoulda shaved micrometers off the top of your or gone for wood .1 g lighter... LOL

Once again, please use the "edit" button. It's there for things you missed, among other things, so you don't have to triple post. About the tower, I don't know. That's not my event and not my concern, you could wait for next year or ask around. Someone would know.

It is really going to Nats that matters

two years ago, when I was still in middle school we beat Marie Murphy, and then after I left my middle school dropped to fifth place :x

but division C in IL was really no surprise... the same teams have been going since a long time, except two years ago, when my high school replaced stevenson as second... we dropped to fourth, just after IMSA this year :o :o :o
