Travis Elementary Students Compete at UC Davis

On May 18, 13 students from Travis Elementary competed at UC Davis in the RoboPlay Competition. There were 28 teams in Division D (grades 5 and 6). Travis students took 2nd and 3rd place for our region. (one team was 4th – making it 3 teams in the Top 5). Those same teams earned enough points to also capture 2nd and 3rd place statewide. One team also won the Teamwork award for their division.

Students worked hard and did all the coding on their own as Ms. O'Hara was not allowed to coach them in any way once the competition started. They were given the challenges that morning which makes for a stressful, yet exciting event for all involved.
