Freshman Courtney Lonsway to compete with her robotics team...
April 27th, 2011

Freshman Courtney Lonsway will be competing with her FIRST (For Recognition and Inspiration of Science and Technology) Robotics team at the World Championships in St. Louis later this week.  Her team won the Rookie All-Star award at the Peachtree Regional Qualifier in March.
Earlier this school year, Lonsway and her team competed in a regional competition at Auburn University.  Sixty-one teams from around the nation competed in the event.  Each team set up a booth, displaying the abilities of their robots and advertisements.  Her team was ranked 16th out of the 61 teams.  The team earned a spot at Auburn by placing well enough in the Georgia BEST Robotics Challenge, held in October.

Lonsway has been involved with the Science Night Out at the Fernbank Science Center since she was in third grade.  The Science Night Out program teaches children how science can be interesting and fun, as well as how it affects their daily lives.
