The Science and Engineering Council of Santa Barbara brings speakers on the
cutting edge of science and technology.
Today, the featured speakers were the students of Dos Pueblos High School
Engineering Academy! And what an amazing group of innovators!
Their faculty sponsor Amir Abo-Shaeer has won numerous awards, including a
prestigious MacArthur Foundation Fellowship! With his help and the help of eight
mentors, these students do real engineering design. They take a robotics concept
from start to finished product in just six weeks!
And the product is quite complex, competing with 2,000 other contestants to
manipulate objects on a playing field quickly, accurately and safely.
Here are my
photos from the presentation and demonstration, including a video clip of
the robot in action!
