TOLLESON, Ariz: Alexa Perez, a sixth-grade student at Dos Rios Elementary School, recently placed first at the Westside Impact Regional Science and Engineering Fair in the fifth-through-sixth grade Engineering category.

The fair, which was held on Feb. 25 and hosted by Littleton Elementary School District, featured some of the most talented young scientists and engineers in the region. Alexa was recognized for her project, “Will the DIY Mini Drone Fly?”, which impressed judges with its creativity, originality and scientific rigor.

Alexa spent countless hours researching, designing and conducting her project, which focused on elements of aerospace engineering. Her hard work paid off, as she was selected as the winner among a pool of talented competitors.

"We are thrilled to see Alexa recognized for her hard work and dedication to scientific inquiry,” said Dos Rios Elementary School Principal Renee Estrella-Chavez. “She has truly excelled in the field of engineering, and we can't wait to see what she will accomplish in the future."

Alexa will now move on to compete in the state-level Arizona Science and Engineering Fair, which will be held on March 30 at the Phoenix Convention Center.
