DP Engineering Academy Wins Regional Competition


The Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy won its second regional competition in a month this past weekend. Their cowinners at the FIRST Robotics tournament in Las Vegas, composed of three-on-three matchups, hailed from Huntington Beach and Sandy, Utah. The alliance won the first two matches in a best of three final. This year’s competition demands that robots throw Frisbee-like discs into scoring boxes and climb a pyramid. Next up for DP’s Team 1717 are the World Championships in St. Louis.
