Samlan16 is an alumna of Fulton Science Academy and Milton High School in Georgia.

As a competitor, I mainly had a focus in chemistry and physics events but have also done Write It Do It, Experimental Design, Disease Detectives, and several engineering events. Over my career, I accumulated more bronze medals and 5th place ribbons than all my silver and gold medals combined. How depressing.

My leadership positions in SO included representative at nationals for FSA in 8th grade, vice captain of inquiry events of Milton sophomore year, and captain of Milton in junior and senior year. I still consider my best Science Olympiad moment to be winning 6th place in Food Science at nationals. I also coached Crime Busters, Can't Judge a Powder, and Food Science at FSA.

Bad WIDI Titles

I have had requests to post some of my worst WIDI titles of all time since I started doing the event in 8th grade. Here is a rundown:

  • Uh oh! [Insert coach's name] is in a bad mood today! (Practice 2012)
  • Woohoo! It's Legos! (State 2012)
  • The proctor went dumpster diving for this test last night. (Nationals 2012)
  • Hit the easy button now, [partner's name]. (Practice 2014)
  • McDonald's Disco (Practice 2015)
  • McDonald's Disco after Being Hit By a Tornado (Practice 2015)
  • Poor Little Decapitated Mutant Mosquito about to Take over a Tiny Pueblo in New Mexico (Practice 2015)
  • Tweed! (Because one of our team members called twine tweed)
  • The Illuminati takes over a playground in Alaska
  • I'm sorry, [partner], but this is just too random.
  • This is my second to last model, so I'll name it Bob.
  • A really dank protein model

Dirt in a Cup

A magical poem about Crime Busters/Forensics soil analysis:

In a cup
No water.

In a cup
No dirt.

Add the water to the dirt
And presto

In a cup
No HCl.

In a cup
No dirt.

Add the HCl to the dirt
And presto
