Students Excel at UCI Energy Contest

Teams from three Long Beach Unified School District high schools recently placed first, second and third at the University of California, Irvine’s annual Energy Invitational.

In preparation for the event, students in classes and clubs build vehicles from the ground up or by modifying existing vehicles using a combination of energy sources.

Cabrillo High School Engineering and Design (CED) students placed first in the design and review presentation contest, while engineering students from Sato Academy of Mathematics and Science placed second, and the California Academy of Mathematics and Science placed third.

UCI works with local high schools and the nonprofit group Vital Link to offer the event, which helps to prepare students for future careers, introducing them to the world of robotics, design engineering and manufacturing, performance engineering, computer programming and more.

WINNING TEAM – Cabrillo High School Engineering and Design students earned a first place award at UC Irvine's annual Energy Invitational.
