MEGA-CLUTCH ACHIEVEMENT: Start studying for an event the day of competition
ULTRA-CLUTCH ACHIEVEMENT: Don't start working until the day of Nationals
SPEEDBUILD ACHIEVEMENT: Your engineering device breaks in transit, so you rebuild the whole thing at competition
SPEEDWRITE ACHIEVEMENT: Finish half of your test or more in the last 15 minutes
SPEED REDO ACHIEVEMENT: Accidentally skip a question/station on your answer sheet, so you end up having to redo everything after it
*Bonus points if you medaled; extra bonus points if you got gold!

EULER ACHIEVEMENT: Take a calculation-based test without a calculator
ANCIENT EGYPT ACHIEVEMENT: Handwrite your whole cheat sheet…

GUESTIMATION ACHIEVEMENT: Your engineering device did not require use of a ruler/protractor/standard measurement tool
REVERSE ENGINEERING ACHIEVEMENT: Your blueprint was created after your engineering device was built
*Bonus points if you medaled; extra bonus points if you got gold!

BEAT THE CURVE ACHIEVEMENT: Know that you did horribly in an event, but still medal, probably because no one else knew what they were doing either
MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: Completely guess an answer for a multiple choice/matching question and be right

PARASITE POLYGON ACHIEVEMENT: see Event POLYGON, but you carry B, who carries C, who carries you

UNCONTESTED ACHIEVEMENT: Beat the 2nd place team by a ridiculous margin
RAGE ACHIEVEMENT: Actually get first in an event (raw score) but don't get the medal because graders screwed up
'MURICA ACHIEVEMENT: Win 3rd, 2nd, and 1st in same competition
SWEEP ACHIEVEMENT: Win 1st at Regionals, State, and Nationals
CONSISTENCY ACHIEVEMENT: Get the same placing in the same event
UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: Get lost on the way to competition/at competition site when trying to find your rooms

POWER COUPLE AWARD: Medal in an event with your significant other
LOVE MAKES YOU DUMB AWARD: Don't medal in an event, probably because your significant other was doing that event, too
AYUMU ACHIEVEMENT: Memorize a textbook
AESTHETICS ACHIEVEMENT: Have the prettiest engineering device, regardless of how well it works

Best Loser -.-
Get 2nd place in every event, and have your team win 2nd place at a competition <3
That happened to me at Regionals <3 4 events (Heredity, Experimental, Meteorology, Sounds) with 2nd place, along with my school winning 2nd.

Beyoncé Achievement~
***Flawless.

This is actually really interesting; now that I see it, I'm wondering why no one has thought of it before (more likely, I just missed it among the endless pages of General Chat).

Clutch Achievement - Pretty much what everyone does
Mega Clutch - Yup, still going YOLO like the majority of Scioly students
Useless Calculator Achievement - Asking a parent to run and get a calculator for an anatomy test that had one calculation that could be hand solved :(
Speedwrite - Forgetting to flip over a test, and noticing that you still have 25 questions and 10 mins.*** Got first place anyway :)
BSing Parasite - Write down bogus answer for 5 questions you have no clue about and still get them all right, and plus 1 for effort.
Ultra Guesstimation - Angling a wheeled vehicle without any protractors and still getting 8th.( which makes me wonder what the other teams were doing)

Wow... I probably missed a few, but will update eventually.

Might as well:

Uncontested-Simple Machines at Friendship Christian; we beat our B team by ~20 points and they beat the 3rd place team by ~25.

I will love you if you read all of this :D I've done my fair share of these!
CLUTCH ACHIEVEMENT: GeoMaps, but got 6th :D
MEGA-CLUTCH ACHIEVEMENT: Coach told me I had Game On as event as well (meaning I had now 6 events) on the bus ride to competition, AND got 1st xD
SPEEDBUILD ACHIEVEMENT: This wasn't my achievement, but one year, a team member built his tower on the (bumpy) BUS RIDE to state, and WON
EULER ACHIEVEMENT: Wasn't necessarily a calculation based test, but one Geo Maps test had TONS of calculations and stuff that a calculator would have helped on:P
ANCIENT EGYPT ACHIEVEMENT: Does this count for vehicle data sheets that I ALWAYS forget to print out? Probably not..
ULTRA MEGA HYPER DRIVE BEAT THE CURVE ACHIEVEMENT: I have NO idea how...but a few years ago at the Palatine invite...my car for gravity vehicle decided it wasn't going to work, and went down the ramp fine but only made it like 30 cm and stopped even though my brake was set to stop way later. So there were obvious deductions and such..but how...I got 1st...WHAT?!
MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: again, geo maps lol
O2 ACHIEVEMENT: This one's always fun :D
HOST ACHIEVEMENT Tell me about it :roll:
UNCONTESTED ACHIEVEMENT: The year before we hadn't even placed as a team at state, but the next year we won state by 70 ish points, and then again the next year by about 100 points :D
RAGE ACHIEVEMENT: Regionals last year in WiDi :evil: :evil:
'MURICA ACHIEVEMENT: Yes! And the event I got 1st in the other 2 teams from my school got 2nd and 3rd :lol:
UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: Happens every time we go to Northridge....
ANTI-AESTHETICS ACHIEVEMENT: Mousetrap Vehicle my 8th grade year, just sticks of balsa and cd wheels but won regionals! And I guess Gravity Vehicle at Palatine (see above) which was actually held by duct tape and we won lol... :P 8-)
Sorry for all the smilies lol!
Scioly isn't a club, or an organization. It is a lifestyle.

Now that I have time to think about this:

HOST ACHIEVEMENT: It used to happen sometimes, but now I have very skilled partners.
PARASITE ACHIEVEMENT: Disease Detectives at Chattahoochee earlier this year; I had been doing it for a week, my partner had done it last year for two-and-a-half months (and was amazing at it).
BEAT THE CURVE ACHIEVEMENT: Chattahoochee last year in Simple Machines; we had no idea what to expect, but somehow we still won.
NEWTON-LEIBNIZ ACHEIVEMENT: :lol: All the time; especially Fossils (and we somehow won 1st at Dodgen Invite)

BEAT THE CURVE ACHIEVEMENT: Know that you did horribly in an event, but still medal, probably because no one else knew what they were doing either- This pretty much happens to me in every event because I never feel like I did well :lol:
MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: Completely guess an answer for a multiple choice/matching question and be right- All the time
BLIND STAB ACHIEVEMENT: Completely make up a number or term to a free-response question and actually be right- ALL THE TIME
BS ACHIEVEMENT: Make up your own theory to a Short Essay question and get full points for the question- There was this tiebreaker for Ento once about the grasshopper and the ant story by Aesop, my partner and I BSed it and I think we got it right haha.
N2 ACHIEVEMENT: Win 3 events with the same partner- At an invitational, with a guy who had 3 of my 4 events.
PARASITE ACHIEVEMENT: Win an event as the completely useless partner- with my best friend for DP. I was the parasite, not her...
'MURICA ACHIEVEMENT: Win 3rd, 2nd, and 1st in same competition- Ladera Vista Invitational
UN-STREET SMART ACHIEVEMENT: Get lost on the way to competition/at competition site when trying to find your rooms- Regionals at UCI. Such a huge campus, so large that we had to get a parent to drive us to the Wheeled Vehicle and ELG rooms so we wouldn't be late.

My own original achievements- feel free to use these because *Sam Smith voice* I know I'm not the only one
EARLY BIRD ACHIEVEMENT: Be the first to finish, but place 1st. Happened to me for Ento.
SLAY ACHIEVEMENT:Place first in all your events. Happened to me last year at Regionals.
FREELOADER ACHIEVEMENT:Your team places in the top 3, but one or more of your events completely sucked, as in last or close to last. Hasn't happened to me yet thank god
SCRIPPS ACHIEVEMENT:Spell your name or your school's name wrong on a test or a box/bag with materials or building stuff from your school. Hasn't happened to me, but some other friends have done it :lol:
INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS ACHIEVEMENT:Make friends with kids from another school or with the proctors. I love this one the most! -credit for the name goes to jadestar405, she's awesome!
2016 Events: Invasive Species, Fossils, Write It Do It
