Dos Pueblos High Robotics Team Wins In San Diego

The robotics team from Dos Pueblos High School in Goleta won first place in a regional science and technology contest last week in San Diego.

The robotics team from Dos Pueblos High School in Goleta won first place in a regional science and technology contest last week in San Diego.

Fifty teams participated in the tournament – called For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST)—and Dos Pueblos beat last year’s champion in the final round, said Santa Barbara school districts spokeswoman Barbara Keyani in a statement.

The Dos Pueblos win qualifies the team to compete in the world championships in Atlanta in mid-April.

Before then, they will compete in another regional tournament in the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena from March 20 – 22. The 32-member team is coached by Amir Abo-Shaeer, director of the Dos Pueblos High School Engineering Academy.

Event information is available on the Los Angeles FIRST Robotics Competition Regional website:

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!
