students holding robotsTabb Middle School students know that building robots today will help them change the world tomorrow.

Students in the Engineering Design and Problem-solving class collaborated with high school students in San Francisco to compare our bay issues from the East Coast to the West Coast. Students worked in teams of 3-4 using the Hummingbird Robotics kits to design robots to "Save the Bays." TMS students will showcase their devices to stakeholders during an in-class showcase Tuesday, June 5th.

Additionally, members of the STEM robotics after-school programs participated in two competitions this weekend.

Two of our five TMS Underwater Robotics teams advanced from the Regional Competition to compete in the International SeaPerch ROV Competition held at the University of Massachusetts, Dartmouth June 1-3. Competing with 170 teams from around the world these 6-8 graders exhibited valiant engineering efforts and performed in the top of their class: Olivia Chang, Claire Chang, David Sayre, Deana Brown, Adrian Legaretta and Finley Payne.

Members of the TMS Land-based FIRST Lego Robotics team competed in this weekend's CNU STEM day Robotics Scrimmage. The veteran team of Tristan Holland and Jonathan Rice received a judges award for design efficiency and use of the gyroscope sensor. Our rookie team of Marissa Salisbury and Maria Koenig tied for 4th in their class.

Congratulations to all teams for exemplifying the importance persistence, team work, and the power of the engineering design processes.

"Build a bot-change the world!"
