Three Childlink teams that took part in the Alliance STEAM Cup 2019 were able to successfully land a win after impressing judges with their Robotic creations last November 9 to 11, 2019.
One of the winning teams from Childlink was Team RAR, composed Grade 3 students – Rheema Alesna, Ashton Rojas, and Rob Francisco – who made it to the top 3 of their category “Creative & Innovative Solutions: Loving our Farms”.
Two teams also made it to the top 3 in the “Creative & Innovative Solutions: Climate Change” category, namely, Team Majel which was composed of Grade 4 students, Marc Miranda, Jessemarie Tio, and Lhei Adelle Antiporta; and Team Robotic Builders, composed of Grade 5 students – John-Paul Payapaya II, Matthew Cabrera, and Ali Dianalan. The teams placed 1st and 2nd runners up respectively.
The Alliance STEAM Cup is a Robotics competition spearheaded by our partners, Compass Education, with the goal of encouraging the youth to develop 21st Century Learning Skills. The competition was open to all public and private schools in Cebu. The Childlink community feels enormous pride in the students who represented the school, whether or not they had placed. It is our hope that, by taking part in these kinds of activities, students will be inspired to be more creative when it comes to their Robotics and other STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) skills and that they will strive to hone these important skills for life.
Childlink Learning Center & Childlink High School has been offering Robotics classes to students in Kindergarten 2 all the way up to Senior High School since 2017. The school sees it as an important step to equipping these young learners with 21st Century skills such as programming. It also helps them improve their creativity and affinity for innovation. We are incredibly than proud and happy that our Linkers had the opportunity to test their skills against other students their age and come out successful. Congratulations to all our Linkers!
