Techmaster55- Compute This
Me- Road Scholar
Rmp509- R&M

Our team didn't do that well this year (massive tech failure besides mousetrap), and this is the first time we weren't in the top ten in the last 5ish years. We were disappointed, to say the least. At least we'll work harder for next year, I guess. xD

...how does that make you a failure? Science Olympiad's a team effort; your team couldn't have gotten 5th without you. And anyway, congrats on getting any medal at all! Getting a national medal is a pretty cool accomplishment. :)

Chalker, how did the scoring process go? The awards ceremony seemed to go on without a hitch. :)

Just curious, but does anyone happen to know the exact school that the Japanese ambassador team is from?

Congrats to everyone who participated!
on a very unrelated note, does anyone know how to find the third song from opening ceremonies? It was the one with the guy dancing.
The other two are currently stuck in my head: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DZGINaRUEkU and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=akek6cFRZfY

For everyone who was as amazed (to say the least) at the opening cerimonies, here are the three videos:
