Honors biology student Ethan Gage from Mountain Pointe High School competed in the State Science Olympiad recently. He won the robot arm event beating out 34 other schools for first place.

The Science Olympiad is a state competition involving 35 Arizona schools. Each school has at least one team that competes in 25 events involving all science areas. The Robot Arm competition required a student to build a remote controlled robot arm that had the task of picking up various objects and placing these objects in different types of containers. Points were awarded based on the item they picked up and the container they placed this item in. There was a time limit of three minutes. Gage scored 44 points and the next closest was 40 points.
