Other Mindstorms Mayhem coaches were Andy Pratt, Anita Brouse and Drew McEnroe.
Mindstorms Mayhem, was one of three teams from All Saints Academy that participated in the competition. The other two were called TOBOR and Fire Fury.
“TOBOR received many compliments from judges for their creative and clever presentation for which they wore footie pajamas all day. This group of seven students stood out in the crowd,” said Silveria.
Fire Fury was made up of a group of third and fourth graders, was the youngest students that participated in the championship.
Fire Fury's project included a collection box, referred to as Eagle One, for vital documents in the case of an emergency evacuation. Eagle One has a locator chip, a GPS and an accelerometer so the box comes alive for tracking if it is bounced about.
Congratulations to all three teams for their participation in the championship!
