We have a LOT of students from both campuses participating in DI this year--Compass has 10 teams comprised of 58 students! Teams have been working hard since the fall semester to design, create, build, script, and plan their team Solutions to the Challenges they selected. Below are descriptions of the Challenges and the lists of the participants.
We wanted to invite you to come watch the students present their Challenge Solutions. It is a lot of fun, and the students get really excited when their teachers come. Below is a list of all the students, but because we have so many teams I'm sure that no matter when you come, there will be a Compass team to watch! (We won't have the actual schedule until about a week or so before the Tournament.)
