West High’s Combustible Lemons competed in the FIRST Tech Challenge World Championships in St. Louis in this year’s competition game, “Velocity Vortex” (go here to watch a detailed video about gameplay and rules.) (FIRST = For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology). After being one of four finalists, they won the INSPIRE Award, an honor equivalent to winning the Super Bowl or World Series, giving them the title of World Champion at this event!
Combustible Lemons and Disruptive Innovation were featured on local media: Quad-City Times, KWQC, and WHBF. HUGE congratulations go out to all the students, coaches, and volunteers on these prestigious honors!
