Killian Campbell, Braeden Cole, Maddie Emerson, Jonah Matso, Jayce Nielsen, Henry O'Shaughnessy and Jayna Wheeler's dedication, crazy creativity and teamwork paid of when they won 1st place at the Maine State Odyssey of the Mind Tournament!
THEY BUILT A WHAT?
The rumors are true. The team built WITHOUT ADULT HELP a banana vehicle that carried two passengers, had two forms of propulsion and came apart and back together after traveling separately. It also had a device that takes your smartphone away if you text. Pretty great idea, huh?
They also built a set with three scenes, one of which is like a pop up book. They made costumes, props, wrote a killer script, rehearsed, rehearsed, rehearsed and then gave an amazing performance that had the judges and audience laughing out loud.
IOWA OR BUST!!
Now we need your help. The team has 8 weeks to raise $8,000 to help them get from Kittery, ME to the University of Iowa in Ames, IA. Once there, they will compete with teams from all over the world.
