Re: Envirothon

We had our county Envirothon today. Our team, the Picky Porcupines (I didn't come up with the name since I was put in a week before the competition), won Forestry, which was the first time our high school won anything Envirothon-related. We also got 7th out of 18, which is not bad considering. :) C...

Re: Where are you going for colleges?

Right now, I think that MIT is the best fit for me. However, there's the problem about money and if I actually get accepted, so I'm looking at Drexel, Lehigh, and Penn State as well. Any advice? While it's not as much as MIT, I got accepted to Penn State Main, and it's nearly impossible to get any ...

Re: Coke or Pepsi?

you know that coke owns pepsie right? :| :| Coke does not own Pepsi... Dr. Pepper on the other hand is different in every state, it can be owned by either Coke or Pepsi, or can be entirely independant... My tech teacher who helped me in SciO works for Pepsi, so he brings it in for the students some...

Re: Envirothon

The rival school got an 84/100 on their soil test, so I guess they're pretty hard to beat. Instead of medals, we get plaques. I'm sort of looking forward to this, but it's not a really big deal at my high school. At your state, doesn't Penncrest always win? Our Soils person scored first place with ...

Re: Envirothon

Yes, Penn Crest won at nationals, and I'm not accusing anyone... You need to participate to understand exactly where some of these things are coming from... I have upmost respect for Penn Crest, and because they are doing such a good job at the competitions, they give me even more drive to work hard...

Re: Envirothon

Yes, Penn Crest is insane... They ace nearly every test. Our local game commissioner is actually investigating it though, he is entirely convinced that the team is getting copies of the state test before they compete... I don't know if its true, but 100% is crazy to me... I enjoy it either way =)

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle C

Are you going to states? Or is your season over? My season is over, we were two places away from making it to states. I'm kind of glad we didn't make it though, I think states for SciO is the same day as states for Envirothon. I hate to admit it, but I like Envirothon more. Also, I only stayed to w...

Re: Ornithology B/C

At regionals, I brought The Reader's Digest Book of North American Birds, I wasn't allowed to use it though, because it wasn't a field guide. Instead I used the National Audubon Society Field Guide to Birds, the Eastern Edition. It was ultimately a better choice anyway, because the birds are classif...

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle C

lmao, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to freak on you... The end of the third nine weeks was today, I have been so stressed to get all of my work done. As for Physics, lol.... I wish you could be in APC Physics with me, lol... If you saw me in that class, you wouldn't believe that I was SciO worthy, hahaha...

And just for the record, if you check the Out and Back wiki photo gallery, my design mirrors that of one of the cars pictur...

This quiz is amazing, and you can customize the settings to fit what you wish to be tested on, it's the best one I found online, and definetly helped me at regionals.

Re: Mousetrap Vehicle C

lmao, I'm assuming you've never been to California University son... Or have seen any of their students... These are not the most brilliant of people, so don't go all technical on me. I did my part, and I did it well.

Re: What annoys you?

Lmao, that's a good one... I get annoyed when the college kids at Cal-U laugh at all the SciO kids... I hate to tell them, but these middle & high school kids are more intelligent than they could ever hope to be! lol
