Students Place 5th at Battle of the Brains

It was an exciting morning at Union Station in downtown Kansas Battle of the Brains City on Wednesday, December 4, 2019 as the Battle of the Brains finalists were recognized and overall winners announced. As you may recall, LPS had two of the twenty finalists in the metro-wide competition. These included 2nd grade students from EPiC Elementary, along with PEAK students from Alexander Doniphan, Kellybrook, and Shoal Creek elementary schools. We are excited to report that the PEAK students, representing Alexander Doniphan, Kellybrook, and Shoal Creek, had their project announced as the 5th place finisher in the competition! These students were called to the stage and presented with a $10,000 check to be used for STEM education. Congratulations to the students and teachers involved in this amazing journey and experience!
