Atlantis Robotics of Desert Vista High School placed second in the high school division and fourth overall at the National Underwater Robotics Challenge recently at Chandler High School. The students not only participated in the underwater challenge, but they also competed in writing a technical report on their robot, giving an oral presentation on the robot, discussing their robot with the judges, presenting a video of the challenge they created about the mission, developing a website about Atlantis Robotics and hosting a green charging station for the robot batteries.
