We placed in every event of Robocon. All winning robotics teams got a trophy and each student on the team got a medal. We won 3rd place in our Line Following event where students had to build and program robots to autonomously follow a course predetermined by the Robocon committee.
CONSEF SCIENCE FAIR:
We had 8 students present their projects to judges during the science fair portion of CONSEF. Each of them did an amazing job!! Best of Category awards mean that Esi and Brionna had the top senior division projects in each of their categories out of all the 9-12th grade students that had projects in their categories. Malak received the GRAND Award which means her project had the highest total score of ALL of the senior division (9-12th) student projects presented at the fair. This is the highest individual student award in the science fair project portion. This meant she was at the top of all the high school projects. She did a great job and we are extremely proud of her!
CONSEF Best School Award:
Our school received the ranking of 2nd Place School in the Senior Division out of all the high schools that competed in science fair.
