I was voluntold to help judge a STEM competition for gifted middle schoolers in the area. There were a number of black pilling things about this (run by Jews, gifted teacher was a flint-eyed idiot woman, etc.), but I’ll just give you the most important one.
About 1/3 of the groups produced a working machine. No problem there, it was a tough assignment. One of the machines, produced by a group with a boy I pegged early on as having an IQ head and shoulders above the rest, was simply astounding and far better than I would have made. But that didn’t matter, because the judges were giving extra points to the girls left and right for presentation, and deducting them from the boys. Most of the points were given for teamwork and documenting the design process in a nice portfolio.
I judged one team of four girls who would go on to win the competition. Their machine wouldn’t budge during the time allotted, and they went back to their seats sad and frustrated. When it was announced they had won, they were shell-shocked. The presenter tried to cheer them up, but to no avail. When they sat back down with their giant trophies, they looked crestfallen and confused. When I mentioned this to the coordinator, she gave me that matronizing look of contempt only Jewesses can really pull off that says “Oh, I didn’t realize you think I’d care.”
Only girls took home any trophies. So that’s the future of engineering: nice portfolios, great teamwork, and machines that don’t work.
