McCool takes 1st Place in eCybermission Competition

Posted: Updated:

McCool Elementary and Middle School won first place in the 6th Grade Division at the 2015 eCybermission competition. Principal Geoff Fong said four students - Helen Quast, Michala Connelley, Aura Griffith and Heaven Reyes - entered the engineering design category with the aim of ensuring the security of Apra Harbor by creating a security reconnaissance turtle.

"It's actually in the shape of a turtle that's remote-controlled with sensors in the turtle to detect whether there's going to be divers or submarines," he said.

The girls each received a $1,000 savings bond as their reward. Fong said the eCybermission helps students become creative problem solvers who aren't afraid to ask why or why not.
