Mission Possible 5th
Road Scholar 2nd






Experimental Design: "What's chromatography?"

Mission Possible: "Was the molasses supposed to leak out of the plastic capsule and ruin everything?"

Road Scholar: Two medals in one event, that's what I call business!


2016-17

Event Missouri Region 6 Finals (St. Louis Area) Missouri State Finals 2017 National Finals
Experimental Design 1st 1st 8th
Meteorology DNP 3rd DNP
Road Scholar 1st 1st 1st
Rocks and Minerals 1st 1st 13th







Experimental Design"

Regionals: Losing points on the easiest sections whee!

States: Almost getting tiered but still winning tiebreaker for first LMAO

Nationals: And to think that 7 AM was early AHAHAHAHA


Meteorology: I studied for weeks just to answer one question of the test.


Road Scholar

Regionals: When you can literally lose half of your points and still win :thinking:

States: Not getting a perfect score because a certain idiot misread the entire map drawing section...

Nationals: "QUICK! PUT DOWN 6 FT/1000 FT ON A SLOPE GRADIENT PROBLEM... OH WAIT"


Rocks and Minerals

Regionals: Finishing the test 30 minutes early and going to homeroom to eat pizza!

States: TFW a Pembroke coach gives you a lecture on hourglass Selenite (which you have never heard of before) at the hotel and it's on the next day's test...

Nationals: Touching a piece of quartz bigger than your binder :0


2017-18

Event Missouri Region 6 Finals (St. Louis Area) Missouri State Finals
Experimental Design 1st 1st
Road Scholar 1st 1st
Rocks and Minerals 1st 1st






Experimental Design

Regionals: Were we supposed to get the rubric?

States: Gotta love the most stereotypical topic ever!


Road Scholar

Regionals: Scared because of satellite images...never mind.

States: A horrible feeling of apprehension because it was the last event to be announced


Rocks and Minerals

Regionals: Same test as last year, with the same exact spelling error and the same exact top 5!

States: Coming out of an event knowing you've won is the best feeling ever.


2018-19

Event UChicago * Missouri Region 6 Finals (St. Louis Area)
Experimental Design 11th 4th :(
Fossils 6th 4th :(
Geologic Mapping 19th 4th
Write It Do It 17th 9th








* I had about a week's worth of time to prepare for this competition, as I was originally planning to do Division B



Experimental Design

UChicago: "Let's use some flimsy sandpaper as our ramp, with a washer that doesn't even roll straight!"

Regionals: TFW your partners argue about the topic for a solid 15 minutes


Fossils

UChicago: "I think this is a Cryptolithus, so the lagerstatten it came from was DEFINITELY not Beecher's Trilobite Bed!"

Regionals: Guessing the formula for hip height from feet dimensions correctly but then measuring the dimensions of the feet incorrectly be like ashsdagfj


Geologic Mapping

UChicago: You'd think a person who was good at an event about reading maps wouldn't take a wrong turn in the snow and arrive 20 minutes late...

Regionals: Coming into the event with a t h i c c binder full of internet printouts whee


Write It Do It

UChicago: "WE DIDN'T GET DEAD LAST!!!"

Regionals: WIDI? More like I die...in WIDI

Event Affinity

I have done (or at least attempted) a lot of events. Here is a complete listing.

Now, whether I liked them or not was another situation. This is a list of my top 5 favorite events. You might notice that most of them are Earth/Space Science related:

  1. Rocks and Minerals
  2. Experimental Design
  3. Fossils
  4. Road Scholar
  5. Write It Do It

Ongoing Wiki Projects

(to remind me)

  • Road Scholar Satellite Maps section
  • Missouri State Tournaments (whoops forgot about this haha - will do after finals)
  • Eventually making more entries in Past Event Rotations maybe dating back to mid-2000s?
  • Upload MO 2019 scoresheets when they're publicly released

Besides SciOly

Dxu46 also competes in Speech and Debate for his school. Currently, he is a Lincoln-Douglas debater and participates in Original Oratory and Dramatic Interpretation. He won a plastic starfruit for Congressional Debate for 2nd place in one tournament, and then he decided he was too pro for Congress. Dxu46 enjoys being a part of Quizbowl. Although he does it mostly for fun, he has still experienced limited success, with his knowledge of Greek and Roman mythology from Percy Jackson and his large musical knowledge. Dxu46 enjoys listening to and playing classical music very much. He has been playing the violin for a while, and participates in selective orchestras. Dxu46 is discovering his newfound affinity towards opera with scenes such as the Queen of the Night's aria from Mozart's The Magic Flute. He tried singing its staccato, and from then on, his appreciation for opera singers rose drastically. His playlists on Spotify are comprised of mostly classical music, and although it is unpopular, he enjoys it very much.
