Fifth and sixth grade teams representing all 23 Escondido Union School District (EUSD) elementary and middle schools participated in the 2017 EUSD Math Field Day, held at Del Dios Academy of Arts and Sciences on Saturday, March 6th. School teams, consisting of seven students, worked together to solve a series of hands-on mathematics and engineering problems during the morning. The teams with the highest scores received medals at the end of the event.
