Samlan16 coaching Food Science and Crime Busters for Fulton Science Academy, Georgia. Also competing in the new Division C trial event "Fermi Answers."
Ah yes, Fermi Answers. Where they give you the order of magnitude and you have to guess what it describes. Good times.
Remember, we are proud of every team that participated and you are all winners.

I suppose you guys beat Munster then? Congrats!!!1

As cheesy as it sounds, I'd recommend trying to have as much fun as you can at nationals. One thing I regret from last year is that I spent so much time worrying about my events that I didn't get to just wander around UNL or do random things with my friends like I had in the past

A bit hard to have fun at Wisconsin Stout (Not as great as Florida), but who knows.

I'm officially attending from St. Joseph's Catholic School in Idaho.

(Events: Fossils, Picture This, Green Generation, Invasive Species)

EDIT: I was actually put into Green Generation opposed to Disease Detectives this year for the national competition. ;)

Hi Everyone...

I go to a school in Illinois and our school places around 5-6 at state every year (which is in 2 weeks). In general, the top 4 teams all hire parents and other adults to help in all events, especially building ones. Is there any way for us to be able to get further this year? Most people on the team don't lack the work effort needed (maybe like an hour a day after school, probably up to 3-4 the week before state), but we always fall down in building events because we get very little help compared to the teams who use parents.

All I can say is ignore the parents and be an engineer. Build the stuff by yourself; you may learn a thing or two about your events. From the perspective of one who did the aforementioned, you will be a notch above the others in the end, even if you don't get a medal. My team definitely has a lot of helicopter parents, but my builds that I exclusively worked on have ended up to be superior to those built by parents because I know exactly how my devices work. In other words, realize that those students who are not building their own stuff are deprived of an educational experience, and use that fact as motivation to overcome the hardship of learning how to build stuff independently.

As for motivation, get a hype squad together so people will want to go to practice. If your practices are fun (and perhaps with free food?) they will come and work.
Remember, we are proud of every team that participated and you are all winners.
