At the Team Jubilation performance of the final of the opening ceremony, there were four energetic girls who wearing shark costumes. They danced with the hot children’s song “Baby Shark”. The adorable jubilation performance perked up the atmosphere immediately. They are team Vibranium which came from South Korea.
The team name Vibranium was from the movie Avengers. It’s a fictional metal which was crucial in the movie. Team Korea said that they chose Vibranium as their team name because it had related to the name of IICC, also wished that they would be a team which couldn’t be ignored in this competition.
The members of Vibranium came from different schools, and also studied in different major. But the reason that they grouped to join IICC was that they were all interested in this competition. Additionally, they wanted to show their creativity in the contest. They said that the activity and creativity were the essential components of their team.
This was the first time that Vibranium came to Taiwan to join IICC. They said that some of the members didn’t learn the subject of science in the school. They worried that those tasks which included more academic questions would be an obstacle in the contest. To get higher scores, they might choose the tasks besides science field. Vibranium said, “Our team goal is to build experience rather to win the competition, so we will make good memory.”
Although none of the members had join IICC before, Vibranium still believe that everyone could promote their creativity and challenge themselves. Also make some friends from other countries. The Korea team said that they would like to go sightseeing if they had enough time after the competition. Although their wishes may not come true, they still made some beautiful memories and experienced diverse cultures. (by Chieh Chien Liu and Yu Xuan Lin)
