We medaled once, AMAZINGLY, in Awesome Aquifers. 2nd! Wowee! Again, though, a little disappointing that my friends missed the scholarship. Amazing, again, that we placed at all!
We got 38th overall. I got 12th in Widi and Food Sci, and 43rd(not surprisingly,) in Miss Poss.
Congrats to ExCEL Homeschool for 11th place! lol the girl on your team with glasses and a high ponytail, she wore a green flower at the closing ceremony, she was like stalking me all day on Sunday (or was I stalking her?) but literally we were everywhere at the Kennedy Space Center at the same time! And we left at the same time too!
lol we cheered for all the homeschool teams, and the maryland high school. Maryland medaled thrice overall, twice to centennial. yayz, congrats! (lol that person who didn't want to be picture taken medaled in chemistry.)
Just so you know, I'm being vague here so only certain people will understand me.
man that's awesome that homeschool swept two of the 6 top miss poss spots---congrats to Albuquerque and ExCEL on that one! The best we were hoping for was for the machine to work...we only had 5 intermediary tasks and there were two major fail points, of which one failed and we had a different, unexpected fail points, ending up with a total of only 54s and 2 touches, and the total claimed on our TSL was like, only 500 points. Hearing that some people got >1000 at states, I knew we weren't in luck for that one.
WIDI--B division (idk if the C had the same model) How did I get 12th? Did yall not finish either? I literally got only 1/3 the pieces, but the big pieces. No offense, but I glanced at b35 and it looked like the doer had used all teh pieces, however they came in after us, at 15th. That was something i didn't understand--sure it was challenging and I used half the pieces, but pparently the person was so inaccurate i beat them with my half the pieces. I thought I'd get maybe 40th. hehe, I beat solon on that one. They got about 30th.
Food Science-I was so happy about that one! I knew everything but like 5 questions, but I thought everyone would do just as well as we did, so I thought we'd land aruond a 30th. but we made 12th! Whoohoo!
Wow, tornado guy. Are you serious the lowest you guys got was 12th? wow.
lol a very ranty post.
Okay Food Science, here I come! Food Science toughie returning next year, 12th place holder at Nationals. If we make it again (too hard to predict), expect me there!
