The Jr. ACT-SO students (grades 6-8) are only weeks away from their Jr. ACT-SO Team Competition. The team competition will be held Saturday, March 3, 2018 at Glenbard South High School from 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM. Each team will present its problem and solution to a panel of judges who will identify two winning teams: 1st Place (Gold) and 2nd Place (Silver). The students and Jr. ACT-SO volunteers have invested many hours into learning how to work as a team, follow a design process, identify a problem, do research, prepare an abstract report, develop presentation skills and use decision-making tools to select a solution for the problem the team identified. The competition is open to the public. Please plan on attending and bring a friend or two. You will be impressed with the maturity of the students and the quality of the solution developed by each team.
Our thanks go out to the students, parents, coaches and technical mentors who are to be commended for their continued dedication to and support of the Jr. ACT-SO Program.
