FLL Robotics Team

Oakman’s robotics team which is composed of 10 students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grades represented our school in a regional competition yesterday. The students and awesome coaches, Mrs. McMahon, Mrs. Puente and Mrs. Mosed worked extra hard to understand the concept of the challenge presented to them and then apply their learned skills about robotics and team work to overcome the challenge.

We are super proud of each and every one of them.
