Congratulations to Our Winning Teams!
By Jamesetta James
On behalf of IT-oLogy, I want to thank our sponsor, host, volunteers, students, coaches and staff members for making IT-oLogy Tech League STEAM Competition I a success. We could not have done this without your support, participation and dedication.
Below is a recap of the divisions 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners. The link to the pictures taken during the event is available here.
The primary goal of the Tech League STEAM competition is to develop student’s critical thinking and problem solving skills through communication, collaboration and teamwork. To assist coaches in developing and fostering these skills, free workshops will be available at IT-oLogy for teams to work on practice challenges. These workshops are in addition to their individual practice sessions. The dates and time for the free workshops are:
- January 13th, 2018 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm Practice challenge I
- February 3rd, 2018 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm Practice challenge II
- March 10th, 2018 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm Practice challenge III
- April 14th, 2018 12:30 pm – 2:30 pm Practice challenge IV
**Registration for the February 17th, 2018 competition is now open with a deadline of February 9th.**
The new competition practice packet will be available January 8th, 2018, six week before the competition. Please continue practicing with the previous packet until then.
