Rousseau DI at Global Finals



Today was a BIG day here in Knoxville. We walked all over campus and met lots and lots of kids from lots of states and many foreign countries. We’ve met kids from Mexico, Guatemala, Poland, Brazil, Canada, England, and Korea. The kids from Turkey are really cool and we learned how to say “thank you” in Turkish. They also had really awesome hats. We walked all over and Peter saw a lizard when he was walking up this really big hill called “The Hill.” (Confederate soldiers took cannons way up there in the Civil War during a battle.)¬†We went swimming and met lots of kids from all over and traded lots of pins. A snake slithered across the sidewalk right under our feet on our way to the opening ceremonies. They were really cool with national anthems from all the countries and a parade of all the states and nations. There was an amazing light show with fireworks too. We made duct tape ties and things to wear to the ceremonies. There is a duct tape fashion show so we are getting a lot of ideas. Tomorrow we have our instant challenge in the afternoon so we are going to watch a bunch of other teams’ performances tomorrow. There are even some university teams here. Thank you again for all your support! We could not have done this without everyone at Rousseau’s help!
