Schlage High School (Kansas City, Kan.) senior, Alex Lor, 18, answers questions from Danielle Binion (left), with Prep-KC, as part of the Project Lead the Way Senior Showcase on Thursday, April 18, at Union Station in Kansas City. Lor’s invention is called a “Sharp Shooter,” and mixes archery and paintball to simulate a non-lethal combat experience. More than 250 students from 11 Kansas City-area school districts were scheduled to participate in the event, part of a national effort to get more students interested in careers involving science, engineering and technology. The students, grouped in more than 100 teams, displayed projects they had developed in engineering design or biomedical innovation.
