Charlotte Christian School lower and middle schools students recently earned honors in competitions for both robotics and science.
The Lower School RoboKnights Robotics Teams have advanced to compete in the 2017 VEX Worlds – VEX IQ Challenge Elementary School Division, scheduled for April 23 to 25.
Six students are divided into two groups – RoboKnights Boys and RoboKnights Girls – all fifth grade students with a love of engineering, math and science. The RoboKnights Boys won first place at the state level, earning the 2017 VEX IQ Challenge State Championship title, and the girls placed third in the state. Both teams will continue training to prepare for the VEX World Championships later this spring. The RoboKnights Boys are Israel Lewis, Evan Santaniello, and Jackson Turner and the RoboKnights Girls are Caelyn Miller, Kennedy Rogers, and Clara Sadowski.
The lower school RoboKnights is a first year program at Charlotte Christian, modeled after the successful middle and upper programs, who also advanced and competed at the state level in the North Carolina VEX VRC State Robotics Championships.
Four Charlotte Christian eighth-grade students recently advanced to the Regional Science Fair held on the campus of UNC-Charlotte. Elizabeth Davisball, Emma Edwards, Zoe Jackson, and Jordan Montgomery represented Charlotte Christian School at the regional science event.
Zoe Jackson won first place at the Regional Science Fair in the category of Biological Science A and advanced to the North Carolina Science and Engineering Fair.
Elizabeth Davisball also was honored with a second place finish in the United State Air Force Outstanding Engineering Award for her project that studied the aerodynamics of fabrics that are used by athletes in the sport of swimming.
