Today was our Science Olympiad regionals. Being busy all day, I didn’t get a chance to watch but two towers being tested. But there weren’t any terribly impressive ones there, mine being 8.6 grams, and the next 12.4.
There was one major complication. Instead of being provided with sand to load our towers as the rules specify, we were given pebbles. You can probably imagine the thoughts running through my mind.
But I was surprised at how much my tower held, 14.6kg, and took home a gold. Now on to states. I am hoping for a sub 7 gram tower.
