Very similar to the regional and invitational. It was easy, so I thought that we would have done worse, with a tedious population thing we had to graph.
They also asked about the acronym NIMBY, which I knew because my history teacher last year got very off-topic all the time.

NIMBY. . .as in, "Not in my backyard"?
There once was a group of teens
Who were lean mean science machines.
They liked to win medals,
when everything settles
and their favorite color was green.

what does "not in my backyard" have to do with anything?

According to Wikipedia...
The term (or the derivative Nimbyism) is used pejoratively to describe opposition by residents to a proposal for a new development close to them.
I suppose that this could have something to do with ecology.

It was about alternative energy- constructing windmills, to be exact.
