HHS SCIO members competed in an Huntley Invitational against other schools on Saturday, Feb. 20. In HHS, SCIO members from many schools were able to compete in events with a plethora of robot arms, metal cars, tubular trajectory machines, and more.

The Huntley SCIO invitational was able to have the robot arms and other machine competitions take place in the east gym and by the HUB. Some events, however, were scheduled to be in the Field House. But, due to the weather conditions on Friday, one piece of metal came off the Field House roof. Leaving the competitions in the field house to be moved to the east gym.

With that being said, the competitions ran smoothly for the day. The areas of interest throughout the invitational was the robot arm and tubular trajectory competitions. Many schools competed in these events. Schools like Prairie Grove, Crystal Lake, Stevenson, and more. But the HHS team felt very comfortable during the competition because they are used to the surroundings.

“I feel like it is fun because it’s at our school and we’re familiar with the surroundings,” said senior Kelsey Finnamore. “Other people get to see where we come every day and what [HHS] means to us.”

That comfort would lead the HHS SCIO team to achieve many successes at their invitational. HHS placed fifth in Air Trajectory, fourth in Fossils, third in Game On, first in Geologic Mapping, first in Green Generation, first & second in Hydrogeology, and lastly first in Protein Making.

So, all in all, HHS SCIO placed in eight out of the 23 competitions. This brings good news to the HHS SCIO team as the move onto the College of Dupage regional March. 12.

One former member of SCIO and recent HHS graduate, Aboorva Sivasankaran, also shares what SCIO means to her and how it feels to come back to HHS.

“It feels so good and I miss [SCIO] so much and all my friends that are younger than me it’s good to see them again,” said Sivasankaran. “I miss being in the school, which is a lot different from what I remember and, it’s really nice to be back in the environment.”
