The Leos were busy this week. On Sunday they participated in the Aut2Run, both as participants and volunteers. And on Tuesday, they presented the 805 Miracle League with a $1000 check to help fulfill their plans to build a county wide baseball field for children with special needs.
ROBOTICS Team Journey this Year
Now – please allow a little bragging here. Our art teacher, Ms. Christa Gonzales, led our first ever Robotics team to their first competition. The team consisted of 6 members, while the average team had anywhere from 15 to 50. These students worked tirelessly, staying after school almost every day for months to build a competitive robot.
Despite the setbacks and frustration along the way, Ms. Gonzales took them to the 2-day regional competition at Ventura college. Competing against 40 other teams from as far away as Switzerland, the Final Frontier ended the competition with one award for Top Seed for a Rookie Team, one award for Most Inspirational Team AND they were in the FINAL FOUR! This led the way to Houston for the World Championships.
The Final Frontier left for the World Championships in Houston, Texas on Tuesday of spring break. These competitions took place with seven divisions of 67 teams each, including teams from over 15 states and 5 different countries. After 3 grueling days of competition, not only did the team reach the quarter finals in their division AND rank as the top seed Rookie Team out of all seven divisions…they are the FIRSTVentura County team to ever bring home any trophy from these competitions.
On May 1, the Final Frontier, along with Camarillo HS, was honored by the OUHSD Board .
