Past Results

2016-2017

This was TheCrazyChemist's first year of SciOly, and he was very new to the concept. He was also not very good. However, he still managed to scrape one 3rd place medal in Ecology at the Connecticut State Competition. Note that he actually earned this medal and was not carried by an 8th grader. He also got fourth in Fast Facts, beating the A-Team on his first time competing in the event. Ecology and Fast Facts would go on to become some of his favorite events.

Bronze TheCrazyChemist has received a Bronze medal in Ecology at Connecticut States 2017.



2017-2018

TheCrazyChemist had more experience this year, and he considers this year his best SciOly year. He got better at Fast Facts, an event in which he consistently got medals in. He also got better at Ecology, although he did not show it until Connecticut States. Note that he got carried in Rocks and Minerals and Connecticut States.

2018-2019

This year was a rebuilding year for TheCrazyChemist. Both of his best events, Fast Facts and Ecology, had rotated out. He decided to pick up Meteorology, and Thermodynamics and Heredity, although he was out competed in all but Thermodynamics for the Invitational season. TheCrazyChemist got 7th in Thermodynamics at Cornell. He may have gotten a medal if he had not changed his temperature prediction. At states in Thermodynamics, TheCrazyChemist did not think that the event was run very well, and he got 5th while the A-Team got 1st. Both teams faced build penalties for not so great reasons. TheCrazyChemist also tried out Circuit Lab, but found it very difficult. He was only able to learn combining circuits, a skill which earned him a 3rd at Sacred Heart. Fun fact, he almost lit an electrical fire at that scrimmage.
