Once again, Tacoma’s School of the Arts shows it’s about science, too.
SOTA’s robotics team went to international competition in 2008, and it’s going again this year. The SOTAbots team is one of six that made it through the 2010 FIRST Robotics Competition: Microsoft Seattle Regional at KeyArena Friday and Saturday. Next stop: April in Atlanta.
Other local high schools that competed with soccer-playing robots were Foss, Wilson, Bellarmine, Puyallup, Emerald Ridge, Bonney Lake, Spanaway Lake, Graham Kapowsin and teams from Mount Tahoma and Tacoma Schools Career and Technical Education Programs. A TNT article about the competition appeared Saturday.
Congratulations to the 30 students who are part of the SOTAbots team and their coaches, Ken Luthy, Rich Williams and Jim Nelson.
