Two Poth teams are headed to state Odyssey of the Mind competition, following success in regional competition March 12 in Pflugerville.

After months of preparation, the students turned “trash” into a creative masterpiece. The competition challenges the teams to use as much recycled material as possible.

The fifth-grade team included Heath Dunn, Johnny Hime, Kyle Zaiontz, Abby Zaiontz, Emma Gawlik, Brianna Maha, and Lana Pruski. Lisa West coached the fifth-grade team. The students’ problem was called “As Good As Goldberg.” They created a device that could water plants and then developed a marketing plan to sell their invention. The team finished in second place and will advance to the state tournament.

The sixth-grade team included Garrett Darr, Caleb Albert, Austin Sekula, Rachel Raabe, Nicole Laskowski, and Kameron Coburn. They were coached by Jeanne Kotara. They competed in a problem called “Full Circle.” They had to transform an object three times and have it come back to its original form. These students worked hard and put on a great show.

The seventh-grade team, coached by Judy Scheffler, included Alex Chapa, Ashleigh Moody, Jonathan Pape, Noah Wiatrek, Allie Wehde, Daniel Soto, and McKayla Maha. They competed in a problem called “Le` Tour Guide.” The students had to visit two places around the world and then create a new destination of their own. The team finished in first place and will also advance to the state tournament in Houston on April 16.
