General Information
Years in SO 2
Current Team South Forsyth High School
Grade 11th
State GA
Division C

Rasmit is a random kid who goes to South Forsyth High School and does sort of okay in his events (although he admits he could waste less time on Discord and focus more on studying).

Competitive Activities

2019-2020 (9th Grade, Div C)

In the 2019-2020 season, Rasmit had absolutely no clue what any of his events were really about. He liked Codebusters (although he was terrible at it and never practiced) and Machines (although he was and still is terrible at classical physics) and got thrown onto Astronomy at his second invitational even after getting around a 7% on the tryout test. Throughout the year, his notes were just random equations, diagrams, formula sheets, and other miscellaneous information thrown onto a document and virtually never updated. He also forgot his entire binder at home on the day of Brookwood Invitational but that isn't important.

2020-2021 (10th Grade, Div C)

In the 2020-2021 season, Rasmit suddenly decided to put effort into Science Olympiad! As a result, he was actually able to get decent placements! What a surprise!

Rasmit realized that, if you practice for Codebusters, you can actually get better! Thus, he made a website and a Discord bot to practice, and ended up getting addicted to the Morse ciphers (Pollux and Morbit). He also got thrown into Fossils one December morning, probably because he answers all the DSO questions in Astronomy, and ended up doing better than expected! Sadly, because he did not do very well at tryouts, he was not able to compete in Machines, although that is probably for the better.

1. 2/3 of the test did not save at this invite, which is the reason for the inconsistently low placement.

Trial Events

Rasmit (being Rasmit) spent way too much time preparing for his trial events and thus performed better on them than his main events, as is made evident by the tables below.

HUSO Online Open

During the summer, South Forsyth High School participated in the HUSO Online Open. Rasmit's team, "Spicy Avengers", ended up placing 1st overall in the Online Quiz Bowl, in which teams were asked questions from various science-related topics including physics, astronomy, computer science, chemistry, and biology.

2021-2022 (11th Grade, Div C)

At the end of the previous year, Rasmit was chosen as one of the vice presidents of his school's Science Olympiad club, along with three other vice presidents (including Royce) and two presidents. Together, this team of six planned and led South Forsyth for the next season.

[math]\displaystyle{ ^{\dagger} }[/math] Note: These sets are currently the original copies which were used at the competition. I plan to revise these sets with minor clarifications and/or more in-depth keys sometime in the future (as soon as time permits) in order to help teams further prepare for their events. This superscript will be removed from sets once they are revised.
