Floyd County sends 45 to region competition
Students show off their skills in technology, design and robotics.
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.
