Pandi is a member of Stephen F. Austin High School's Science Olympiad team. His events include Code Busters, Ping Pong Parachute, Forensics, Chemistry Lab, Data Science, and Protein Modeling. He brings intellectual energy to the team as well as a sense of mysterious confusion. Often a source of frustration due to him not trying as hard as he could, he nevertheless does well (so far) at competitions. The 2019-20 season will mark the first time he will compete at the Texas State Tournament, which will (hopefully) present more of a challenge in terms of competition.
