Family and Community Engagement Spotlight: Longwood

We featured this FCEP spotlight in our February 2018 newsletter

Longwood Central School District's MBK FCEP grant enabled the district to create the FIRST Tech Challenge team at the Longwood High School. Students, coaches, parents, and community volunteer mentors met for more than four months to develop strategies and build robots based on engineering principles. The students designed, fabricated, programmed, and tested a competitive robot. The team competed against 24 groups at the  FIRST Tech Challenge Qualifier  and became a semi-finalist, ranking sixth overall. Eleventh-grade student Harrison Heinrichs was also named a semi-finalist for the Dean's List Award.
