ASFL Students Receive Honors at National Civil Engineering Event
Students from the Academy for Science and Foreign Language (ASFL) went to Washington, D.C. for the “Future City Competition.” Their teacher, Angela Traylor, along with volunteer mentor Raymond Woodson, a retired aeronautical engineer, traveled with students to the prestigious event to showcase their design against dozens of other teams both internationally and from across the U.S.. ASFL won the regional competition held last month at the Space and Rocket Center in order to earn this spot in the Nationals. Their city, "Adelaide," took third place honors at the national competition and winning the school a $2,000 scholarship for its STEM program.
The Academy for Science and Foreign Language has traveled to the national competition for the past few years, and even won first place in 2016. The Future City Competition has over 40,000 students from the United States and abroad participating in the science, technology, engineering and math program.
