Three talented high school students from Miami, Florida, and Buffalo, New York, have earned top honors in the 2018 Drive for Design contest, sponsored by the FCA US Product Design Office.

And tomorrow's LTU students will do the same. Lawrence Tech is about "Theory and Practice," taking abstract ideas into the real world to solve tomorrow's problems.
