Sumo Competition Winners

 Today's competition allowed many different configurations which allowed the students to see how the different design had their own pros and cons. 

In First Place Team Eric  

Team Eric's strategy was to play it safe but then push the opponent around using their positional advantage. 

In Second Place Team Matt

Team Matt's strategy was one of aggression but also pausing before going for the win to make sure. 

In Third Place Team Ruby

Team Ruby's strategy was "Hug the Edge" then attack if you find the opponent.

Second quarter has begun - New Lessons have started

 To all grades sections 1 through 4

The 6th grade classes have started learning how to program using Tynker. This is a web based program so as long as they have internet access the students can continue to enjoy learning. 

The 7th grade classes have started on the transportation project called Designing a CO2 car. They'll be making use of the design process learned in the previous assignment while using supplies from Pitsco. 

The 8th grade classes have started on the next steps to improving their understanding of how Robotics and programming are interconnected.
