Our second invitational was a great experience for veteran and new members! With two teams competing (Beachwood A and Beachwood B), our new members had opportunities to explore different events and learn from our veteran members.
Jen/Steph 3rd in Disease Detectives
Yuke/Daniel 3rd in Robot Arm
Yuke/Cameron 3rd in Wind Power
Jen/Greg 4th in Invasive Species
Cameron/Matt 6th in Optics
Mukul/Sreyas 7th in Dynamic Planet
Steph/Prerna/Julia 8th in Experimental Design
Mukul/Jesse 8th in Helicopters
Jen/Kelly 8th in Microbe Mission
Overall Beachwood Team A placed 8th as a team! This was an improvement from 15th at Westlake just a week earlier. Additionally, due to a Model UN trip we missed some key members from our usual team but still did great. And of course we went out to Taj Palace for a team dinner afterwards (team tradition)!!!
We will take the advantage of the three weeks before our next invitational at Solon to refine cheat sheets, make test corrections, and continue improving our building.
We kicked off our season with a great start at Westlake with several members placing such as:
Jen/Greg 2nd in Invasive Species
Daniel/Yuke 4th in Electric Vehicle
Muk/Yuke 6th in Chem Lab
Jen/Steph 6th in Microbe Mission
Abby/Steph/Priyanka 8th in Experimental Design
Beachwood High School overall placed 15th out of 60 as a team. There were more schools at Westlake this year and the competition was stronger, motivating us to keep improving!!
Currently we are working on refining our cheat sheets, making test corrections to learn from our mistakes, and improving our building!
