Robotics isn’t just for high school and middle school students. It’s a growing part of STEM education in our elementary schools as well. Last week, students from many of those schools got together at the Alabama Math, Science and Technology Initiative (AMSTI) and put their skills to the test in an elementary MasteRobotics competition.
Winning the Grand Champion title was O’Rourke Team A, comprised of Mahtahseen Fatima, Madison King and Eli Milischuk. This team had the highest combined score in all challenges, and also had the highest score in the Supply Distribution Challenge.
High-point winners in the other challenges were:
Moon Maze Challenge: Leinkauf 5th Grade (Allison Brown, Giana Bullard, Bryan Chiguil & Caitlyn Young)
Supply Search Challenge: Meadowlake Coding Kids (Zoie Anderson, Riley Norgon, Colton Smith & Micaiah Gibson)
Spirit of AMSTI (teamwork & collaboration award): Dodge Dashers (Jon-Cooper Sweatt, Bennett Morgan, Maria Soekhies, Evan Bailey & Audrey Kirby)
Congratulations to all who participated!
