 Specimen 001: [A weird creature that walks and has weird sounds coming out.] 
First_Observed: 2016 Collected by: ALIEN Specimen_Name: Hoatzin General_Specimen_Description: First found at William Diamond Middle School in Massachusetts in 2016 with a focus on building flying objects and doing something called "physics" and then was somehow lured into "Earth Science" and building rolling objects. Seems to have had a brief contact with something called "biology" which appears to have been put on the "dislike" list. Extirpated from site 2019. Currently found at Lexington High School in Massachusetts where the specimen continues to primarily build random objects and and do this weird "Earth Science" (note: is this of concern?). However, random sightings of this specimen continue to be reported from Diamond under the so-called name of "coaching".

 Specimen is still a small creature. Was named a  "Liaison" and placed on Varsity. Something else has appeared to taken over and caused specimen to have to stay some specified distance from other creatures and thus all the competitions were moved online. This allowed specimen's team to go to many more invitationals than normal. Specimen is now better known by the name Hoatzin. Hoatzin has continued to dive into the world of birds and fossils, and learned a lot about oceans. Discovered that "Earth Science" (concerning) is quite interesting. As a more build-focused creature, decided to take up Digital Structures for the lack of actual builds. Specimen continued to coach Diamond. Co-director of Lexington Invitational.

 Small specimen made it to a big high school with many big names. Teams were unstacked going into Harvard, specimen was on Team B. Notably made some beautiful flying objects, which was slingshotted and crushed while winding the night before Harvard requiring a one-night-build. After Harvard, specimen was placed on the states team and on Ping Pong Parachute. Lots of work was put in afterwards at a barn, but due to something known as COVID (What is this? should this be of concern?) states that year appears to not be on our record. A coach of Diamond.

 Specimen was happy to finally be on varsity after many hours of work. Probably spent the most hours on scioly this year. Managed to finally win states after an impressively long streak from Coolidge. Took up Gliders, which turned out not as fun as building planes powered by spinning rubber. May have gotten sucked into "Earth Science" (once again, is this of concern?) after having a great fossils coach. Suprisingly did well as water quality until meeting floating bugs at nats. Enjoyed Battery Buggy (aka Curling) a lot, and had a high-accuracy buggy which crashed somewhat, due to creature error at nationals.

 Specimen was once again on an alternate team. Tryouts score distributions looked like a Keeling Curve. Spent a lot of hours and the brain knowledge increased. Discovered that "Lab Events" are not very enjoyable although building is fun. A very good year for Wright Stuff and suprisingly focused on physics events.

 Specimen was a small creature on an alternate team. Became attached to making weird flying objects over the weekend that flew in circles. Also became wary of burning plastic and expired pringles. Tried but failed to get into many builds. The flying object happened to snap in half at states.
