This is our first science olympiad team ever!
So whatever place we got, we were just happy that we beat Hawaii's previous rankings by 13+ places....
However, we were almost blown away by the testing events...everything was much harder than expected (except for chem lab apparently...)
Next year, we'll definitely be more prepared though....

Also, U of Wisconsin campus was amazing!
OMG! YOu guys did awesome for your first year! WOW That's insane!!!
2009: Protein Modeling (4th) overall 7th
2010: Cell Bio (11), Write it Do it (10), overall 5th
2011: Disease (4), Microbe (10), Protein Modeling (5), Sounds of Music (2), overall 1st, nats 21
2012: Disease (4), Forestry (5), Microbe (-), Protein Modeling (6), Sounds of Music (7), TPS (7) overall 4th

Nationals was fun, but kind of disappointing because I only got one medal.
I medaled in Protein Modeling (4th). My other events were Remote Sensing (8th), Dynamic Planet (11th), Disease Detectives (12th), and Write It Do It (47th)
Our team got 20th, which is okay I guess........
Most of us didn't even get a medal.

Sorry if I offended anyone. I just really wanted more than one medal (like 2 or 3 would've been nice), and I worked really hard, as in I passed up on studying for AP tests and put off studying for finals and essentially slacked off in my school classes for science olympiad.

Erm..we did horribly. 31st, and only a first at Battery Buggy and a third at Anatomy. But next year we'll do better...

Physics is difficult for 99% of the world's population because they don't understand it. The other 1% know too much.
