It is very gratifying to see our World School (4th-8th grade) be recognized as having one of the elite STEM programs in this region after top finishes in TWO recent competitions!
5th Grade Robotics Team
Our 5th grade robotics team was a finalist in the Lego League Tournament and will advance to the regional in Plant City! They competed against top elementary and middle school teams from schools such as Berkeley, Shorecrest, Cayman Islands and Admiral Farragut. Under the direction of Mrs. Amy Piper (UE STEM faculty), our team finished very strong and also won the Spirit Award!
Middle School Science Olympiad Team
As previously announced, our Middle School (6th-8th grade) Science Olympiad team finished 4th in the regional competition and will be advancing to the state championships in Orlando! This was particularly exciting as it was our first year and we competed against many strong middle schools from throughout the Western region including several 2015 top 5 state finishers. Under the direction of Ms. Lindsey Gillette (MSSTEM faculty), our students each had top 5 finishes in individual events with a strong 1st as well as several 2nd and 3rd place finishes!
