LAKEWOOD RANCH -- A student at Out-of-Door Academy in Lakewood Ranch was honored at the White House Science Fair this week.
Brittany Wenger was honored for researching and creating the Global Neural Network Cloud Service for Breast Cancer, "a service that combines multiple data from a single less invasive procedure to improve cancer detection," the White House said in an information sheet about the event.
"Originally conceived with the goal of helping hospitals to diagnose and treat more women earlier, the service has already run 7.6 million trials, with 99.11 percent sensitivity," the White House said.
Wenger last year won the 2012 Google Science Fair for her work.
"Though science has been her passion since first starting a science club in the third grade, Brittany has managed to master other talents as well as a varsity soccer player and mentor to students in her community," the White House said.
