Bossier Schools Shine at Second
Triumphant is the best way to describe Alan Ramirez, an 11-year-old student at Central Park Elementary, following the second Regional Autonomous Robotics Circuit competition held February 11 at Bossier Civic Center.
Ramirez proudly hoisted a trophy over his head after Central Park Team 3 won first place after being put to the test in a series of Lego robotics and engineering challenges.
“It feels great,” Ramirez told The Times. “I wanted to finally build a robot that wins!”
That is exactly what he and his team did. And right on the heels of CPE was Legacy Elementary Team 3, which captured second place in the elementary division.
Altogether, Bossier Schools had five winners emerge from the second round of competition.
Airline High School Team walked away winners, with Team 1 placing first in the high school division.
And in the middle school division, Benton Middle Team 9 captured the second place slot, with Greenacres Team 5 right behind them, placing third.
The seventh annual RARC competition drew more than a thousand students and 235 teams from throughout northwest Louisiana. Hosted by Cyber Innovation Center’s National Integrated Cyber Education Research Center (NICERC), in partnership with Bossier and Caddo Schools and the City of Bossier City, the focus is to entice K-12 students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
