Not my partner, but I was assisted in building my ramp for GV by one of the team B members that does the event (bc my partner was not available at the time) and afterwards said person goes around telling everyone that they built our ramp in addition to their own (including the coach, the president, other people on the team, etc.) I designed the pieces of the ramp and the profile in CAD, stayed many hours in school to laser cut them out of plywood, cut the sheet metal surface, researched and bought the best screws, and made the release mechanism. Said person drilled the pieces together while I held them in place. Not only that, but said person's father did most of the work building their ramp. Luckily my partner and I were able to clear things up. I would normally let something like this slide, but I wasn't about to have my reputation attacked by someone who shows very little commitment to the team in general.

My partner for WIDI isn't exactly horrible (though he's not great either...) but a big problem is that he's COLORBLIND... Not literally, but there have been several instances where he's called something yellow "orange" or something green yellow.
2020 (the year that never happened) events:

Heredity :) (we <3 genetics!)
Fossils :D (the best!)
WIDI :?: (no comment)
Circuit :roll: (why did I decide to do it...)
