    Nine teams of elementary and middle school students from MOT Charter School and various schools throughout the Appoquinimink School District qualified for the state finals by placing in the top three at the regional level competitions held in Smyrna on March 8.
    First-place finishers in the Bay Region event included a team from Cedar Lane Elementary School that competed in the “It’s How We Rule” problem; a team of middle schoolers from MOT Charter that competed in the “Stackable Structure” problem; a team from Olive B. Loss Elementary School that competed in the “Driver’s Test” problem; and a team from Silver Lake Elementary School that competed in the “Seeing is Believing” problem.
    Second-place finishers included a team from Alfred G.

Redding Middle School that competed in the “Driver’s Test” problem.
    A team of middle school students from MOT Charter also qualified for the state finals by finishing third in the “Not-So-Haunted House” problem.
    At Saturday's state finals, those teams will compete against the top finishers at the River Regional competition held at John Dickinson High School on March 1 and the Ocean Regional competition held at Lake Forest High School on March 8.
    They also will be joined by two teams from Appoquinimink High School who will be competing in the “Stackable Structure” and “Seeing is Believe” problems.
