History (and science) in the making

For the first time ever, students from Fayette County -- McIntosh High School sophomores Hannah Mason and Leslie Sellers -- competed in the International Sustainable World (Energy, Engineering, and Environment) Project Olympiad, also known as I-SWEEEP, a groundbreaking science fair open to high school students from around the world. I-SWEEEP was held May 4-9 in Houston Texas, with 70 countries and 43 states represented and 601 students and 440 projects competing.

Hannah and Leslie's project was entitled The Carbon Controversy: Gas versus Electric Golf Carts and they were awarded an honorable mention and $200. I-SWEEEP, now in its fourth year, is organized by the Cosmos Foundation, a non-profit educational organization promoting math, science, engineering, and computer technologies among the world's youth. The contest provides a platform for young researchers to present innovative projects which take on today’s challenges in energy, engineering, and the environment.

Hannah and Leslie were invited to compete in I-SWEEEP after winning first place at the Regional Science Fair in Griffin in March. The pair also took first at their high school and county science fairs and placed third at the state fair.
