How did we not get last in Boomilever? It broke after the BUCKET.You guys (those teams who competed) should have gotten a score sheet with all the final results...and the score sheet didn't sort by A or AA, they merged and ranked everybody
Others were 2nd tiered? Or had no boom at all? (is that a 2-tier violation though? If so then forgive me)How did we not get last in Boomilever?

1. Munster 2. Stevenson Green 3. New Trier Blue 4. Stevenson Gold 5. Hinsdale Central Varsity I don't remember the exact scores, I'll post 'em later if anyone wants me to since I don't have the scoresheet now
Agreed, Science Olympiad was the most influential thing that I have done throughout high school, giving me the skills and work ethic employers and professors are looking for. Because of this I have been given opportunities as a college freshman due to these skills and my ability to find/fix problems on complicated flight control and power systems (which ties back to Robot Arm over the 2 years I did that event). All of which came from science olympiad and the tech events I competed in. Now I get to work on designing rocket equipment and flight control algorithms, essential just a high budget science olympiad project.Munster, I recall them sufficiently crushing my team last year as well haha.
I see that Stevenson is still on a roll upwards; this is interesting. Change happens, I guess. Good for them.
Hows this year going for you all in scioly? Getting prepared? Its december, this is usually the point of time I realize I haven't done anything significant, take entire "sick" weeks from school and hermit in my room building devices. I think the 2 weeks I was "ill" last year around this time in conjunction with winter break I designed, build, rebuilt, cried a little, and finalized that robot arm I loved so much.
But seriously. I loved that thing. Hence why you'll find pictures of it in the image gallery and youtube videos. No point in a year's work being stuffed in a closet to get pulled out years later. Speaking of that... I actually brought that controller to school with me, though I've stripped the arduino for a pet project of mine, by far I am more proud of that arm than nearly everything I'm working on now in college competition teams.
This whole competition really pays off in the future; especially for you aspiring engineering types. I can say that scioly in conjunction with my robotics work led me to an awesome internship this upcoming summer, and even a second (and perhaps, but unlikely, third) offer on the table from competing companies. Its a good place to be in to have options in college, few people will have them but you will even as a freshman. Just wait.
These are my random words of wisdom, intended to motive you at this driving point in the year. Believe and you can achieve (and any other cliche you can imagine). As always, I get email notifications of PMs so keep those coming if you want to chat about whatever, some of you have.
What are you all working on into the early hours of the morn Illinois-ians? I hope those fossil driven mission possible looking thermodynamics devices are looking mighty chemically!
A couple things...Can anyone tell me the results of the COD Regional last year?
I can't see anything here:
