Out of 24 teams competing on Saturday, November 11, our robotics team was victorious! We rocked our presentation of our aquaponics project, and our teamwork mission was successful. After a few trials, and last minute fixes with our robot, we were able to do just enough to pull off our win. This win cements our position at the LegoLand competition on December 2nd. The team is very excited to make to this regional competition!
Special thanks go out to Ms. Schlose, Mr. and Ms. Olenick, Ron, Mr. Hanft, and all of the parents who helped support our team. And, a VERY special thanks to ResMed, who’s generous grant helped make our success possible.
OTA is one of the only schools in the nation, with accreditation as a Heart Safe School. Our recent CPR/AED Awareness Day included training for all students, kindergarten through 8th grade, and also included a group of parents. All students received age appropriate CPR training, including: basic awareness training for medical emergencies, chest compressions-only CPR, sudden cardiac arrest, calling 911, and more!
