Last Saturday, March 19th, 7th and 8th graders from twelve area schools came together to compete in WVIZ’s Edward P. Campbell Design Squad Challenge, sponsored by ArcelorMittal. Seventh graders Morgan Ashton, Zach Buchta, Jacob Conder and Stephen Miller represented Olmsted Falls Middle School in this competition.
Student teams were presented with three engineering challenges. The students from OFMS rose to the challenge each time by exhibiting phenomenal teamwork, excellent collaboration skills, creativity, and knowledge of basic engineering and scientific concepts.
The students had a lot of fun and emerged as the winners of this year’s competition! Look for the OFMS team displaying their awesome rocketry skills on an upcoming episode of “NewsDepth” on WVIZ.
Congratulations on a job well done!
