CPScienceDude (more commonly known as CP or cpsd) is currently a freshman that attends Crown Point High School, which he is the captain of. He also attended Robert A. Taft Middle School, or just Taft Middle School. He has participated in Science Olympiad since the 2017 season. Currently, he is debating on whether to pursue pathology or aerospace engineering

Also, I have left out the invitationals from 6th and 7th grade because I don't remember which ones we went to, lol.

Past Results

2017 Sixth Grade

My first year in the amazing world of Science Olympiad! It was a pretty decent year, but definitely not my best. In my first year I competed in Hovercraft, Road Scholar, and Write It Do It. My hovercraft was my baby, but it was lame. It kinda sucked, but hey I tried. I was honestly pretty annoyed I was in RS, but I eventually came to love it. However, I had only bad feelings about WIDI. Ew ew ew ew ew ew. I HATE WIDI. I'm sorry, but it's just such a dumb event. AND my partner wrote in really bad cursive. It was completely illegible. Overall, my 6th grade year was very important, and sparked my passion for SciOly, so I guess it wasn't that bad.

2018 Seventh Grade

Year 2 in the world of SciOly! In seventh grade I competed in Hovercraft, Road Scholar, and Mystery Architecture. This year I really started to get involved and dedicated to Scioly. Road Scholar quickly became my favorite event, and Hovercraft was a close second. Mystery Architecture, however, was hell on earth for me. I hated that event so badly. It was just annoying to compete in. This was also the first time I was close to placing at state, with an 8th in Road Scholar. And once again, my hovercraft crapped out for states. It ran well at all the invys but then suddenly started to suck again, which made me mad, but whatever. This year was pretty great, but not the best for me based on my placings.

2019 Eighth Grade

This year was by far my best in Scioly (at the time :P). It was such a fun and amazing year for me. I competed in Thermodynamics, Crime Busters, and Mystery Architecture. I also subbed in Heredity, and Experimental Design. This was also the year I found, and I kind of attribute this website to my success. Anyway, my season got off to a slow start, at the Hammond Invitational, only getting a 6th, 3rd, and a 2nd (out of 9 teams). Doing so poorly was a wake-up call for me and I kicked it into high gear. I practiced more, and studied harder. We were also supposed to go to the Northridge and Mishawaka invitationals, but unfortunately those were both cancelled. Then the Valpo invy rolled around and I was stoked. With a 12 in thermo, 3rd in heredity, and 1st in crime busters, I had a renewed vigor for Scioly. I worked harder than ever to prepare for regionals. It payed off with a 1st in all of my events. States rolled around eventually and I got 4th in Thermo and mystery architecture. After this season I am as excited as ever for the 2020 season.

2020 Freshman

This season started pretty slow. My high school team was very, er let's say underdeveloped. With almost no communication and uncommitted members, our team's success was minimal. Despite that, I had so much fun this season. My first invitational of my Division C career went better than I could have ever imagined. I was expecting to place in maybe only one, maybe two of my events. Even then I would have been happy with 5th or below. But no, I got a first place AND two fourth places. Though, I will partially attribute this with only 2/3 of the teams showing up due to weather. Regionals was also a huge win for me, getting two first places and two second places. The team also did much better this time getting 4th overall and securing a bid to states. It was around this time that I noticed the lack of leadership on our team though. Our captain was not organizing anything and basically did none of their captaining duties. I asked my coach if I could help organize the team and he said yes! I made the state event assignments and organized team practices (but no one showed up except me b o t h t i m e s D:<). I then approached my coach and asked if I could be captain next season and he agreed. But then, at the beginning of March, state was canceled. It was a devastating blow, but with events being replayed I plan to take advantage of this opportunity and excel next season. While my first year in Highschool was ended prematurely by COVID-19, I look to seize any opportunity I have to gain an advantage for next season. Though it was definitely sad at first, I've done my best to look on the bright side of things, and I'm working hard to prepare for a competitive season and my first season as captain.
