Liberty STEM 7th grade students on Team Voltage took first and second place for State for eCybermission—an engineering competition where the students come up with a problem to solve in our community. EACH first place winner gets a $1,000 savings bond, and our second place winners get $500 each.
Our first place winners are one of four teams (out of 11) selected to compete for regionals. If they win regionals, they will win an additional $2,000 each and will be off to compete for nationals in Washington DC where they will also meet the president! There they can win ANOTHER $5,000 each!
1st Place State: Team T.2.6 (Seham Ahmed, Aurora Pederson, Steph Hewitt, and Payton Nevland) created an app that alerts you when your school bus is running late.
2nd Place State: Team Faze (Kamden Baer, Jackson Thurn, Noah Kuck, and Thomas Bye) created a time management watch.
All of our teams scored really high for the competition—we are very proud!
