At MIT we were 1.2 degrees C low with our prediction.

In my block, the best score was 53.3C internal and 28C external (hrf = 1.903), however, this team did not go for the ice bonus

Speaking of MIT, what did everyone think about the test? While I thought the multiple choice section was mediocre at best, the free response questions were pretty amazing (despite how difficult that last part was).

The last two free response questions were extremely difficult, but super fun to just try even if I had no hope of answering it. I heard the highest score was 90/168 on the test portion

Speaking of that, does anyone know the staring temperature and volume for Boyceville, Colombia, and Westlake Invitational?

Btw, do you remember where you heard about 90/168 being highest score on the test? I ask because our team actually got pretty close to this score.

This is largely speculative but we were talking to the 2nd place team and they said the ES told them so
