We didn't have rocks. We had graph analysis, a question about waxing gibbous, a question about environmental science (my question, it was asking what gas is a possible cause of global warming) and another question about chemistry. The team question was about biology, I forgot what it asked.

Our questions were something like this:

One was about naming the three types of rocks

Naming a stage of water cycle

Naming another stage of water cycle

I forgot the last individual one

The team one was to draw the water cycle.
Nerds rule. Nerds are awesome. Nerds will someday (soon) rule the world. And you know it.

Yesterday was state for us, and the last physical challenge involved throwing a ball around. so me and my friend became managers and bossed them around and timed them. in the end, it was the academic challenge about labeling the heart that stopped the team from getting a medal.
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.
