We're going to State!

My Olympiad team placed 6th overall out of 23 teams at the Regional tournament yesterday. The top 7 go to State, so we're going to State! It's going to be March 27th in Augusta, which is nice because I won't have to get up at 3 am and have a 20 hour day with lots of kids.

In the individual events, one of our teams placed 1st (Write It Do It- basically, one team member has to look at a pre-constructed object and write directions on how to build it. Then, the next team member has to follow the first team member's directions and build the object. The team whose object looks most like the original wins).

We had one 2nd place team in the individual events (Science Crime Busters... basically it's like a CSI episode). We had one 3rd place team for Dynamic Planet (questions/tasks about volcanoes and earthquakes), and two 4th place teams for Ecology and Can't Judge a Powder (they have to use chemistry lab techniques to identify an unknown powder).

We didn't even compete in 3 events (no one wanted to do one of them, and the other two required students to build a bridge and a car, both of which broke on the bus on the way... leave it to boys to break their stuff!).

If the kids get serious and study, they have a chance of going to Nationals (the top 3 teams from the State get to go, this year it's at the Univ of Illinois). They started studying the day before the trip and placed 6th.

Here they are with their medals. Something I noticed yesterday- Our kids seem much bigger than other middle school students. Some of the other schools' kids looked like babies compared to ours. Hmmm.
