Thirteen River Eves Elementary students advanced to the Fulton County competition of the 11th Annual Georgia Educational Technology Fair (GAETF).
Each entrant received a scheduled time to meet with three judges during which time they viewed a portion of the finished project in one of 14 categories and interviewed the students on the creation process of the project.
“We were especially impressed with the quality of the projects and the presentation skills and poise we saw in the River Eves students,” said one judge.
Here are the students who will advance:
- Divali Legore, a first place winner in the Georgia state competition last year - Animated Graphic Design
- Caitlin Kelly - Non-Animated Graphic Design
- Shane Kelly and Sophie Laidhold - Case Modification
- Dylan Fawley and Camden Thompson - Digital Photography
- Alex Brangers and Isabella Martin and Bradley Dai - Multimedia Applications
- Bradley Scoma and Jayden Sparks - Robotics
- Alex Hayes and Sabrina Villa - Web 2.0 Internet Applications
“I am incredibly proud of our students,” said Peggy Britt, River Eves Technology Fair Committee Chair. “Seeing their ideas come to life is a real thrill and we are so pleased to be a part of the competition again this year.”
In addition to the honor of advancing, students received a certificate, ribbon, coupon for free ice, donated by Rita’s Italian Ice of Centennial Village and a homework pass.
The GAETF - which will take place on Saturday, Jan. 28, at Riverwood High School in Sandy Springs - was founded by Lou Dewberry, who also directed the Tech Fair from its inception. Dewberry passed away in 2007, but The Lou Dewberry Scholarship Fund was established in her honor.
