William's team consists of six members, all from his class. Their team is one of the smallest of the 27 teams competing. The competition officially starts at 8:45 am and lasted until 5pm. It was a long day for the kids but they were all pumped.

I am really surprised at how well the kids did, from design to presentation. Really proud of them. They didn't come out as well as they hoped and William and his team members were heart broken. They placed 16 out of 27. I think they did well for their age group.
