About Us

We are the Regal Eagles


Based out of Bethpage High School, New York, 30 students between grades nine and twelve come together to form The Regal Eagles. The Regal Eagles are a FIRST Robotics team that teaches students about STEM and how to thrive in STEM careers. Under the leadership of our mentors Leon Laspina and Dennis Costa, our students grow into creative leaders and innovative problem solvers through engineering, outreach, marketing, computer-aided design (CAD), and robot design. Regal Eagle students gain the skills they need to pursue careers in STEM fields and beyond.
