Un-Street Smart Achievement: At an invite, wandered all over the place during impound hour trying to find the Wright Stuff gym... ended up locked in this hallway by a pool. Thankfully, someone was about to make the same mistake I was and let me out. (Later, found the gym on the opposite side of the school.)
Newton-Leibniz Achievement + BS Achievement: Same invite, didn't put wave/spring equations in our binder for Sounds, had to rack my brains for one of them and got points for it even though it was mostly wrong... :D
2018: Hovercraft, Thermo, Coaster, Solar System

'MURICA ACHIEVEMENT: 3rd in Mousetrap, 2nd in Sounds and 1st in Code at regionals lol

REVENGE ACHIEVEMENT: we got 3rd at Duke in Codebusters, then beat one of the teams we lost to there to get 1st at Cornell

(near) F ACHIEVEMENT: missed the trigger on the mousetrap in MV at Cornell and they almost counted it as a run bc the vehicle rolled forward a tiny bit when the pencil hit it, most stressful 2 minutes of the tournament.

POPULARITY ACHIEVEMENT: Duke and Cornell :D

I think it’s because (for some reason) a lot of people do anatomy. Maybe it’s because it’s the first event on the list?

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 - I started preparing for fossils only like a week before the competition and still got number 4 for some reason and even though we guessed more than 50 % of the questions
MULTIPLE GUESS ACHIEVEMENT: Completely guess an answer for a multiple choice/matching question and be right - I don’t know this but probably achieved this
BLIND STAB ACHIEVEMENT: Completely make up a number or term to a free-response question and actually be right - I don’t know this but I probably achieved this
O2 ACHIEVEMENT: Win 2 events with the same partner - Yep but what does “win” really mean? Does it mean getting first place or just a medal? If just getting a medal counts than yes.
GET TO A EVENT LATE: (I added this) Be late to a event and got first place even though I was late 10 minutes because I didn’t realize it was time. Plus I beat the 2nd team by just 0.5 points. (Hmm... I wonder which question I got half credit for... since I think none of the questions has a decimal...)

Oh you could be right. Although still super frustrating. Not complaining though since it got us more points overall than if I had just gotten 1st in anatomy
