Dawn Robinson-Weldon of PNLV will be coaching the McKinley Elementary team for the second year in a row. For those who aren’t familiar with OOTM it is “an international educational program that provides creative problem-solving opportunities for students from kindergarten through college.
Team members apply their creativity to solve problems that range from building mechanical devices to presenting their own interpretation of literary classics. They then bring their solutions to competition on the local, state, and World level. Thousands of teams from throughout the U.S. and from about 25 other countries participate in the program.”
The McKinley Elementary team will be beginning their third year of competing. The last two years the team has been able to compete at the regional level, and this year will strive to compete at the state and national levels, as well.
