捲土重來 復興實中首度挑戰決賽

「謝皓胤不喜歡吃芭樂啦!」團員們大肆笑著說,「外面硬硬的裡面軟軟的很噁心」是他不喜歡吃芭樂的原因,也不知不覺成了今年私立復興實中參賽的隊名。其實在2015年的智鐵比賽中,大部分的成員就已經以「指導老師好帥」隊名前進複賽,差一點進入決賽的他們也決定在考完學測後報名參加,並且今年順利晉級決賽。

“Hao-Yin Hsieh doesn’t like guava.” laughed the members. “Guava has a Hard Outside but a Soft Inside, Ewwwwww~” this is the reason he doesn’t like guava. And it gradually became their team name. This is not the first time they participate in IICC. They took part in the competition as “Our Teacher is so Handsome” in 2015, and they nearly got into the final. This year, they went back and finally got in to the final.

二度來參賽,他們抱著雪恥的心情前來,他們表示「去年的複賽真是輸的太無辜了」,而今年的六個隊員能聚在一起,其實是國中時期的緣分,六個人各個優秀且擅長不同領域,隊長黃家冠曾經奪得地科奧林匹亞競賽的冠軍,擁有絕佳解題腦袋的他,個性卻木訥害羞,很多時候仍然需要隊友「凱瑞」。

This is their second year participating in IICC, they said that it’s a shame to lose last year. So this year they are ready to revenge. They are all good different fields. Team leader Jiah-Guan Huang won the first prize in Olympia.

第一次來到決賽,任何事對他們而言都很新鮮,在闖關的過程中,每個人都有各自喜歡的關卡,並且細細品味關卡設計的巧思。雖然嘴巴常常說著「別組的成績好像又比我們高了」,但在過程中享受樂趣似乎才是他們在意的重點。隊員陳韜就表示:「決賽真的比複賽難好多,但題目都很有趣而且很有挑戰性。」

Every team member has their own favourite task. Tao Chen said that although the task is more complicated comparing to the semi-final, the task are all interesting and challenging.

今年首度參加決賽的感覺就讓他們深深愛上,六人一致認為決賽真的好好玩,談到明年的比賽,他們表示有五個人已經要畢業了無法在參賽,把重責大任交給隊員黃家洋,希望他能夠繼續比賽;而上大學的其他人,開玩笑地說「明年當工作人員,可以洩題給學弟妹。」可見智鐵不只侷限在高中的回憶中。(記者 王得翰、呂紹禾/台大採訪報導)

This is our first time advanced into the final competition. We all enjoyed the competition a lot. Most of them are graduating this year so it would be our last time participating in IICC. They will pass on the great responsibility to Jiah-Yan Huang. Hope he could carry on and lead new members to challenge IICC. (Reported by: Wangder, Shao-Ho. NTU)
