They're Going to Disney World!

pleased

current mood: proud

My nephew Tony is part of a team of smart middle-school students from a small town in New Hampshire who developed a software program to help schools keep track of changes in end-of-day pickup instructions for students. The group competed in a national contest for science and technology projects, the Christopher Columbus Program, and are one of only eight teams nationwide to be chosen as finalists!
 
Next week Tony and his team travels to Walt Disney World to exhibit their project, attend Disney's technology academy, and compete against the other teams for the top prizes. My sister is the team advisor.

Here's a link to an article about them in a New Hampshire newspaper:
