We arrived at the Tech Museum ~9:20am on Sunday (4/26), but we didn't get through the competition until 11:30am! I don't know why the progress was so slow, especially when the Tech Challenge organization got rid of the Design Journal Interview section. I guess the success of the program caught up with the organization, and that's a good news. I hate to think what it'll be like next year, but I hope more kids will join the competition.
Either way, my team finished well, but more importantly, they had a lot of fun. They danced, they laughed, and they had fun with their team. I hope you and your kids will join us next year.
