Engineering teams from Sun Valley High School participated in the Mini Urban Challenge which is a national competition that challenges students to build and program an autonomous vehicle that can navigate through a model Lego city. The teams are also judged on their presentations regarding their building and testing of their vehicle.

Sun Valley fielded two teams and placed first and third respectively. They will now compete and represent the California Region in the National Finals which will be held in Washington DC at the Smithsonian Institution on June 1.
