OOTM is a creative problem solving competition that integrates music, acting, set/costume design science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Teams of students work together to solve problems and present their solutions in competitions at the regional, state and international level. In 2022 East Junior High School advanced two teams to the competition! Our Problem 1 team solved the Escape Vroom challenge. The team engineered three vehicles that completed four tasks. They presented their solution through a humorous skit complete with a script, set and costumes all created by the students! Our Problem 1 engineers took first place in the NEPA Region, 1st place in the State of Pennsylvania and 13th place in the World!
Our Problem 5 team solved the Life is A Circus Problem. The students wrote and performed an original script, including original songs, dances, acrobatics, and circus acts complete with sets, costumes and props all created from mostly recycled materials. Our Problem 5 actors took first place in the NEPA Region, 3rd place in the State of Pennsylvania and 5th place in the World!
