CPScienceDude is currently an 8th grader who attends Robert. A Taft Middle School, more commonly known as Taft Middle School. He has participated in Science Olympiad since the 2017 season and plans on continuing to participate in Science Olympiad at Crown Point High School. Further on, he hopes to attend Purdue and get a degree in engineering.
UPDATE: He is currently depressed, as he has realised that CP High School sucks at SO and has gotted dead last at states 2 years in a row. He has come to the realization that he will never have chance of going to nationals and will have a sad, boring SO career.
Also, I have left out the invitationals from 6th and 7th grade because I don't remember which ones we went to, lol.
2017 Sixth Grade
My first year in the amazing world of Science Olympiad! It was a pretty decent year, but definitely not my best. In my first year I competed in Hovercraft, Road Scholar, and Write It Do It. My hovercraft was my baby, but it was lame. It kinda sucked, but hey I tried. I was honestly pretty annoying I was in RS, but I eventually came to love it. However, I had only bad feelings about WIDI. Ew ew ew ew ew ew. I HATE WIDI. I'm sorry, but it's just such a dumb event. AND my partner wrote in really bad cursive. It was completely illegible. Overall, my 6th grade year was very important, and sparked my passion for SciOly, so I guess it wasn't that bad.
|Write It Do It||9th**||22nd***|
2018 Seventh Grade
Year 2 in the world of SciOly! In seventh grade I competed in Hovercraft, Road Scholar, and Mystery Architecture. This year I really started to get involved and dedicated to Scioly. Road Scholar quickly became my favorite event, and Hovercraft was a close second. Mystery Architecture, however, was hell on earth for me. I hated that event so badly. It was just annoying to compete in. This was also the first time I was close to placing at state, with an 8th in Road Scholar. And once again, my hovercraft crapped out for states. It ran well at all the invys but then suddenly started to suck again, which made me mad, but whatever. This year was pretty great, but not the best for me based on my placings.
2019 Eighth Grade
This year was by far my best in Scioly. I was such a fun and amazing year for me. I competed in Thermodynamics, Crime Busters, and Mystery Architecture. I also subbed in Heredity, and Experimental Design. This was also the year I found Scioly.org, and I kind of attribute this website to my success. Anyway, me season got off to a slow start, at the Hammond Invitational, only getting a 6th, 3rd, and a 2nd (out of 9 teams). Doing so poorly was a wake-up call for me and I kicked it into high gear. I practiced more, and studied harder. We were also supposed to go to the Northridge and Mishawaka invitationals, but unfortunately those were both cancelled. Then the Valpo invy rolled around and I was stoked. With a 12 in thermo, 3rd in heredity, and 1st in crime busters, I had a renewed vigor for Scioly. I worked harder than ever to prepare for regionals. It payed off with a 1st in all of my events. States rolled around eventually and I got 4th in Thermo and mystery architecture. After this season I am as excited as ever for the 2020 season.
- Keep in mind that we got 10th with a hovercraft that didn't move, and 20 min on a 100 question test. AND the was the ES set it up was the time started and the teams who were lucky enough to test their device early had more time for the test. We were dead last to be called...
- Lol, so my partner had no practice or synergy together and his handwriting was illegible.
- Same as above.
- Our tower fell down when they were measuring, and they said,"Well you'll still get points for using the materials"... I mean. Yeah? But we also had the tallest tower before it fell down so. I'm pretty salty about that.
- I have no excuse for why we did so bad, except that my partner and I didn't read the directions right and our bridge's closest inside supports were about 5cm apart...
X - Indicates that I did not compete in that event
^ - Indicates that I was randomly placed in that event as a sub.
These are all the events that I have competed in ranked from favorite to least favorite:
