Science Olympiad goes to STATES

by Akshayraj Sanjai

Participating in the Science Olympiad State Competition was a fun experience for everyone in the Science Olympiad at Reedy Creek Middle School. The school did incredibly well, scoring an overall placement of 9th place. And scoring first in Wind Power, and second in Meteorology, and scoring top 10 in various events.

At the state level, the competition was intense, with schools from across the region showcasing their knowledge and skills in various scientific disciplines. The rigorous preparation leading up to the event was a testament to our team's commitment to excellence. We spent countless hours studying, conducting experiments, and practicing for the different events to ensure we were well-prepared for the competition.

On the day of the competition, the excitement and nervous energy were palpable as we arrived at the venue. Walking through the halls filled with other enthusiastic participants, I felt nervous and extremely excited at the same time.

Throughout the day, we competed in a series of events that tested our knowledge of biology, chemistry, and space exploration. From building intricate structures like tower and flight to solving complex problems like quantum entanglement and other theoretical events, each event challenged us to try and remember what we learned. Luckily, we could also use our notes.

Despite facing tough competition from schools with seasoned participants, our team remained focused and determined to give our best in every event. The anticipation after each event e was scaring everyone to the point where they could not stop thinking about the final scores for their event.

As the results were announced, the tension in the air was palpable. When the big screen on the stage said 9th place for our school, the team, parents, and siblings all went wild. The sense of achievement and happiness we shared in that moment is something I will always cherish.

Participating in the Science Olympiad State Competition not only honed my scientific knowledge and skills but also taught me the value of teamwork, perseverance, and dedication. It was a journey filled with learning, growth, and unforgettable memories that will stay with me for years to come. I hope the school and its “SCIOLY” team will continue to make more memories and get better scores, maybe even Nationals!

Is Water Wet?

The decades-old debate has been going on to answer the question; is water wet? 

by BookBolts, March 17, 2021.

In a RC Times survey, 73.3% of people said that water is wet.  When you put even one water molecule on a sheet of paper, that paper is wet. So, say you have an 8 oz. glass of water. In that glass of water there are TONS of water molecules. All of the water molecules are attached to each other. Using that logic, if there is even 1 water molecule on something it is wet, you could say that since one molecule is surrounded by others, then it is wet. Therefore, “water is wet,” says one student. Seems reasonable, right? Well, it depends on what you mean by wet. Wetness is the form of being covered with water, or any liquid that can stick to solids. But if we define wet as a sensation that is caused by coming in contact with water, then water is definitely wet to us. Also, if you define wet as being liquid or made of moisture, then water is definitely wet, but let’s see the other point of view. 

Water saturates a napkin to make it wet.

Let’s go back to the definition of wet. Wetness is having the ability to stick to solid surfaces. Water is not a solid, therefore, from this point of view, water is not wet. The word wet is defined as, “Covered with, or saturated with liquid (such as water).” Using this definition, we will attempt to prove why water cannot be wet. ... Since the word wet is defined as being saturated with a substance, it is impossible for water to be wet,” says one eighth grader.

So where is this going? Well, both opinions are correct, based on what definition of wet you use. Now you know the other point of view!
