Div C Years

2015-2016

This was my 3rd year in Science Olympiad, 1st in Division C, and it felt completely new to me. I somehow got stuck with It's About Time which to me seemed like one the hardest events I’ve had. Yet, I still managed to place at our regional! It was our first time our school went to state and I was excited to compete in Hovercraft. Though our build was a complete mess, and I had no idea we would still be able to place!

Bronze Nydauron has received a Bronze medal in Hovercraft at Illinois State @ UIUC.



2016-2017

This year, I was put under Electric Vehicle. I didn’t even expect to place with my build since it was simply a Ward’s kit that the team purchased. Funnily enough, at regionals, my build outperformed our Varsity build! We went to state again for the second time. This time, I competed in Geocaching and easily got 1st. (We joked my cross country coach would be proud!)

2017-2018

This year, I finally earned a Varsity spot and decided to go try hard. Mousetrap Vehicle was one of the events I spent the most time on: making small refinements, doing several runs, even straight up building a new version! Later on in the season, our team assigned me to do Hovercraft. So during the month of Feburary, I gave my best attempt at trying to build one. Fortunately, I was able to build a functioning hovercraft for regionals. Before that, no one on the team was able to build a “working” hovercraft. Both my mousetrap vehicle and hovercraft got 1st at regionals. Carrying the team to state, I placed 2nd overall for Mousetrap Vehicle and 3rd overall for Hovercraft.

*Because sig figs apparently exist in physics, too...

**Our coaches messed up the result entries for MTV, so we ended getting a silver medal instead of a bronze medal. XD

***When coach doesn't put you in Thermo, and she already signed up self-schedule stuff already, and it just so happened Thermo and MTV were at the same time... facepalm
