Student Achievements



Ayana R. (Grade 8)

2017 has been a banner year for eighth grader Ayana R. Following up on her achievement of High Honors in the Johns Hopkins Center for Talent Youth Talent Search on the ACT and SCAT tests as a seventh grader, Ayana participated in Northwestern University's Midwest Academic Talent Search (NUMATS) where she once again received High Honors on the SAT exam typically taken by high school juniors and seniors. She was also selected for Notre Dame University's prestigious NDignite Connection leadership development program.

Over the summer, Ayana completed the Lawrenceville School's Summer Scholars program in Aerospace Engineering and received excellent remarks from her instructor. To top it all off, she successfully completed the rigorous battery of tests necessary to be awarded full membership in Mensa, the world's foremost organization for Gifted and Talented individuals. Congratulations on all of these outstanding achievements!

     

Joshua R. (Grade 7)

This past summer, seventh grader Joshua R. participated in a robotics challenge held as part of the Somerset County 4H Fair. Josh created and programmed his own robot for the two-part challenge. Part 1 was "Autonomous," in which the robot needs to complete tasks without being touched and is just working off its programming. Part 2 was "Remote Contro,l" in which the robot is connected wirelessly to a controller in order to complete certain tasks. Each task was geared to the overall topic of harvesting. In the first round, Josh made it to the top four, which meant that he could pick his partner to compete with for the next round.  He only knew one other child in the competiton, but couldn't pick him since he was also in the top four. So Josh and another boy whom he'd never met competed together in the next challenge, where they came in third place!! Josh also received a special judges award. The judges commented that his programming and the consistency of his robot were amazing. Well done!
