Bear Metal moves on to World Championships and Advisor Darren Collins wins award!

Tahoma’s Robotics Team, Bear Metal, competed in District Championships at Eastern Washington University in Cheney, WA.   Bear Metal competed with 64 other teams from Washington and Oregon.   Despite being ranked 17/64 teams, they were not selected to go to compete in final matches.  However, due to the way district rankings work, the team qualified to go on to World Championships in St. Louis! 

In addition to our invitation to attend World Championships, there is additional exciting news.  Darren Collins, the Robotics Lead Coach, won the prestigious Woodie Flowers Finalist Award.  He accepted this award during District Championships, in front of thousands of people.  This award recognizes an individual who has done an outstanding job motivating students as well as guiding students through the process of engineering and design.  It is important to mention that this award is won based off of voluntary student essays recommending their coach and evaluated by former Woodie Flower Award winners.  Darren was the only mentor in Washington and Oregon selected for this award out of hundreds of mentors.  Tahoma School District and Bear Metal are proud to have Darren as our lead robotics coach.

Please congratulate Darren and the members of the robotics team for their success.
