ROME, NY – Twelve sixth grade students from Staley Upper Elementary School showed off their science, technology, engineering and mathematics skills by competing to win their grade division during the 2017 DimensionU Department of Defense Math Games, held yesterday on Tuesday, May 23, at The Griffiss Institute in Rome, New York.

The team of Staley students, made up of Abigail Bates, Jacob Cosentino, Santino Campanaro, Gwen Caro, Cooper Engelbert, Collin Gannon, Caden Giardino, Micah Humphreys, Richard LaTour, Collin Mummert, Jacob Premo and Jacob Swavely, took first place in two Mixed Grade Division categories, against three other teams competing from around the country.  The other participating schools were: All Saints Academy, NJ; Alston Middle School, SC; and Gregg Middle School, SC.

Teachers, Courtney Huf, and PC Specialist, Dorothea Iselo, led the Staley Upper Elementary students.

DimensionU Games has been funded through the National Defense Education Program (NDEP) and produced by DimensionU. This math gaming tool enhances students’ skills in grades 3-9 including pre-algebra and algebra, which is tied to the Common Core standard.

To be successful at the game, the students must solve math problems to move to the next phase. DimensionU is focused on delivering innovative and effective technology-based educational tools for elementary, middle and high school students.

The National Defense Education Program funds the AFRL STEM Outreach Program, and all teams are affiliated with a branch of the military.
