I was interested in being a part of robotics. It's like a science and technology club. And they create a robot and then take it to participate in a competition.

We have Scholar's Bowl which is a team comprised of four players competing at a time. You just ask random questions, anything ranging from history, math, science, current events, anything you could pretty much conceive of.

Last year I was in the math team. And Miss Thomas, the math teacher, was the one who approached the students like me and got us to join a math team. We first competed in district competition. And after we got first place, we could move on to the state competition. And in that competition, they gave us a set of multiple choice problems. And then a cipher contest, which is where they show problems on the board and we solve it in 30 seconds.

The Elementary Science Olympiad is where you go up to Auburn and you compete and do different activities. And we come up with an idea and then take it up there. In our science class, I was on a team with I think about three people. And we had to build a pasta-mobile. We basically had to put it up on a ramp and see how far it would travel. And then the winner just gets a prize. It's pretty cool.
