The Elementary Division encompassed grades 4 and 5 and Middle School Division grades 6 through 8. ESCA had two entries in the Elementary School Division and one in the Middle School Division. The Rockin Robots Team worked together to use block coding to have its robot dance and meet certain requirements.
