Depends on your tournament. I suggest having your coach ask the director for your tournament.

I only have scores for Robot Arm C since I supervised the event. Any other scores I know are simply hearsay. Zioly, can you post results from yesterday for your division?


That's alright. I was hoping to see how well I did on the Hovercraft test. I hesitated from posting the full results because I wasn't sure if I was allowed to. Anyways, here they are!

Incredible, your school almost has all of the top five. Congratulations on your many golds. I've heard from the Ecology supervisor that the chickpea answer for the humus question was selected too many times for Division B.

I wasn't present at the award ceremony, but I want to express my excitement for Woodinville making it to State again!! We don't get nearly any school support and can't even access funds to print shirts for our new students, so this is where I can express all my excitement. We're hyped to see you at State.

Good Luck moumantai! If my school makes it to State, maybe we could meet face-to-face?

Thanks bernard. The only downside to having such competitive teams is that we're competing instead of helping each other. I try to help whenever I can, but the tension is still there.

Also, I had a few friends from Leota Jr High go to the same elementary as me, so it was nice to see them again. But, when I was taking my ecology test, so were they, and since they were first-timers, they kept screaming out answers and random nonsense. "Battery acid," one would exclaim, while the other contemplated the humus question, attempting to recall what it tasted like.

There was a question on the Ecology test about humus and most middle schoolers selected the silly answer: a dish made of chickpeas. The correct answer is: the organic component of soil, formed by the decomposition of leaves and other plant material.

Thank you. You know, we're figuring out who's in charge of snacks for State on my team, I might sign up with my dad's famous hummus recipe...

I won't be there, I'll surely be having more fun than you: taking a final exam.

OK, but low-key, should we try to plan a meetup for the WA State forum people? I want to show my team that I'm actually capable of not terrifying everyone I meet...
