Rome News-Tribune - - NEWS - From Floyd County Schools

For the se­cond year Floyd County Schools par­tic­i­pated in Floyd County Schools Tech­nol­ogy Com­pe­ti­tion at Berry Col­lege on Dec. 1, where stu­dents com­peted against each other in hopes of ad­vanc­ing to the re­gion com­pe­ti­tion to face the win­ners from Dar­ling­ton, Rome City Schools and other school sys­tems.

Over 100 third- through 12th-grade Floyd County Schools stu­dents gath­ered at Kran­nert Cen­ter at Berry Col­lege to dis­play their tech­nol­ogy, de­sign, ro­bot­ics and pro­duc­tion skills.

The pur­pose of the com­pe­ti­tion is for stu­dents to come up with an idea of some­thing they want to cre­ate and then work through the process of bring­ing their idea to life.

Once their cre­ations are com­plete stu­dents must then present and de­fend their projects be­fore a panel of judges. For all grade lev­els stu­dents en­ter the judg­ing room alone and present their projects.

Through con­vers­ing with the judges, stu­dents prove they have be­come ex­perts in their re­spec­tive cat­e­gories. The judges se­lected the best from each cat­e­gory to move on to the next round.

Floyd County Schools will be send­ing their 45 first-place stu­dents to the re­gional com­pe­ti­tion on Jan. 25 at Ge­or­gia High­lands Col­lege.
