I started by planning out several renditions of the six wheel drive we plan to make in the summer. We're switching to Actobotics, so the chassis will have to be adaptable to Actos. I plan to use the large square pattern to screw everything in properly. I brainstormed f...

Just as a fun project, I decided to self-teach myself Actobotics by assembling and programming a fully Actobotics Six Wheel Drive with an unconventional chain wrap. This drive was meant to be extremely fast with a 13.3:1 output, using a NeveRest 20 with a 1:1.5 speed r...

Qualifying to the TOC was shocking enough for me. I qualified in Extemporaneous Speaking through the Puget Sound Tournament, which featured bids to the TOC. I didn't get the opportunity to take many pictures at the TOC, but I did have quite a lot of fun. In fact, my te...

Going into the competition, I had high expectations of us. I told my partner that I would start the NeoFlow company with him if we get top 10 at ICDC. After our preliminary presentation, we felt that we did good, but also felt that we could do better. Even without hear...

Nat Quals this year was far better than last year. One major difference this year is that instead of Lincoln Douglas Debate (LD), I do Public Forum Debate (PF) now, and instead of United States Extemporaneous Speaking (USX), I do International Extemporaneous Speaking (...

This one is quite sentimental to me as it's the last super regionals ever. I remember back in 2014 when I went to Sacramento for the first West Super Regionals. Ever since then, I've attended every single one, including this last Super Regional.

For the robot game, we h...

2018 State was by far the best tournament that I've had up to date. Like we have done in our previous tournaments, we won all of our Prelim Matches. We selected teams Gromit's Grommets and Insert Name Here, both of who were fantastic partners. We managed to make it to...

Since this was my second year of DECA, I signed up for different events as last year, with the exception of Financial Services Team Decision Making (FTDM). I also participated in Independent Business Plan (EIB) and Marketing Communications Series (MCS). While I had a l...
