Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy Holding Open House on Saturday

Tour the facility and hear about Team 1717 ahead of a new robotics build season

The Dos Pueblos Engineering Academy is back in session, with the seniors working toward another exciting robotics build season.

The community is invited to the fall open house from 3 to 5 p.m. this Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Elings Center for Engineering Education on the Dos Pueblos High School campus to learn more about the Engineering Academy.

This extraordinary “school within a school” thrives under the direction of teacher Amir Abo-Shaeer, whose charismatic leadership, vision and dedication to teaching has earned him international acclaim and a MacArthur Foundation “genius” award.

The open house will provide the public with an opportunity to see the facility and learn more about the program in an informal setting. Students and teachers will be on hand to answer questions and demonstrate Team 1717’s robots.

Please join us and share our vision for transforming education. An RSVP is not necessary.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
