Cambridge-Isanti High School Good News March 2017

Cerise Metz and Carter Slothouber took 3rd and 4th place at the SCSU Economics Challenge.

On Friday, March 3rd, Mr. Miller brought ten 9th grade economics students to St. Cloud State University to compete in the annual Economics Challenge. The students impressively represented Cambridge-Isanti High School by taking second place in the large-school division competing against 12th grade students from area schools. Cerise Metz and Carter Slothouber took 3rd and 4th place respectively in the individual competition, each winning a cash prize. The other competitors were Andrew Milz, Ethan Kolby, Ethan Lindahl, Jennie Parsons, Jonah Brady, Ian Lindberg, Kathryn Dewey, and Madisen Pynes.

On March 2nd-4th our Bluejacket Robotics team attended the Lake Superior Regional, FIRST Robotics competition at the DECC in Duluth. It was at this competition that we competed against 63 teams from across Minnesota and the Midwest. This year’s game was called “Steamworks” and involved our students designing a robot that can shoot a 5-inch whiffle ball at a 6-foot vertical target, hang a plastic gear on a hook, and climb a 6-feet by 1-inch diameter rope. After a fierce three-day competition our team finished with a ranking of 35 out of 63 and did a really great job. Our team is now looking forward to our next competition in April at Mariucci Arena.
