Third through fifth grade students at Arbor Springs Elementary School designed games, robots and 3D models for the elementary level of the West Georgia Technical Competition on Dec. 16.

The categories in the competition included digital games, graphic design, multimedia presentations, robotics and animation short stories.
The students’ projects were judged by school staff, teachers and the principal.
Travis said the students who place first in their category will be entered into the county level of competition, which will be judged in January.
Rebekah Wigley, the school’s technology support specialist and one of the judges, said the competition helps the students develop skills for the future, and marveled at their ability to understand digital concepts at their age.
“It’s awesome. It’s preparing them for the future,” she said. “It’s really neat to see their understanding of it at a young age.”
The school’s technology teacher, Julia Kephart, said the competition allowed the students to find new ways to enjoy technology.
“It expands their love for technology and the boundaries between real life and the electronic world,” she said.
