LaTina Taylor, Lead Technology Teacher at Eli Whitney Elementary School, and her students competed in the underwater robotics competition. They won 1st place at the Midwest regional competition and will now qualify to go to the international competition in Orlando, Florida in June!

“My students have been working at designing and perfecting their underwater robot and competing for 3 years now. Placing 2nd place in the Midwest two years consecutively against high schoolers. All of our 8th grade students started out with us at 6th grade. This year they were determined to make it to 1st place. This is a reflection of their true passion for STEM! I am so proud of them.” - LaTina Taylor
