West High Student Engineering Team Places in Top 24 in the World!

The Combustible Lemons, one of four robotics teams at West High School, was recognized this past weekend as one of the top 24 teams in the world at the 2013 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) World Championship in St. Louis.  The Lemons earned their bid to compete amongst 26,000 teams from over 69 countries by being named Captain of the 2013 State Champion Winning Alliance this past February.  This is the second straight year the Combustible Lemons have advanced to the World Championship, and all of us at Davenport Community Schools would like to congratulate the team and their coaching staff on this major accomplishment.  To get a sense of the sheer excitement of the event, we recommend viewing the official 2013 World Championship wrap-up video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNGzTg53zDY&feature=youtu.be
