This past week, in East Lansing, Michigan, five teams of students from Owen J. Roberts competed in the world finals of creative problem solving at Michigan State University. All of our competing students worked hard in preparation for representing our district in this competition.
CHEERS to our French Creek Elementary team; Ava Burnheimer, Sarah Cass, Nicholas Cerimele, Grace Dales, Anya Groth, Sophia Lineman, Brooke Radel, and coached by Ms. Pam Yarbrough, for their third place finish in the contest that included a field of 54 teams from across our country and around the world! OUTSTANDING WORK!
Other competing district teams also had strong showings in East Lansing.
- · East Vincent finished in the top ten at number 9.
- · The East Coventry team placed at number 11 out of a field of 68 teams.
- · Our high school students sat in 12th place after the competition.
- The students representing our middle school ended their season in 22nd place out of the 55 teams competing in their division.
A big thank you to all of our Odyssey students and their coaches for their hard-work and dedication to this endeavor. GO OWEN J!!
