Since the awards are being livestreamed to the overflow seating room, will the livestream also be available to the public online?

Followup question: if it is, will there be a VOD?

Got a medal in WGYN which I suggested :^) playing the system

Our two teams got a combined seven 7th places :/ which is almost as many medals as we got

Yeah, I was planning on revising my predictions (which would have been 1. 7L 2. Troy 3. Solon 4. Harriton) after Valley Forge. I guess I should have just followed the trend from 3 years ago :) (I'll be rooting for Stoga to win state though)

I managed a 2nd in Dynamic Planet, which was nice. 14th in Astro was annoying because it was the exact same place as last year... somehow got 11th in Microbes by guessing a lot though :P I already knew I had a lot I needed to prepare, but the reminder was definitely helpful. Next nine seventeen weeks I can hopefully actually concentrate (and not enter Microbes with a notesheet containing info on exactly ten diseases...)

Any idea what the top score for hovercraft test portion was? By my calculations from comparing our two teams, I think it's 35 which is what we got on the test. Is there any other score higher than this? That moment when you have perfect mass score but your hovercraft is still too fast and gets destroyed on time. Such is life.
Rest in Peace Len Joeris
