St. Patrick Catholic School Robotics’ Lego Leprechauns competed at the FIRST Lego League State semifinals in Olympia last Saturday. They placed 14 out of 29 teams in the robot competition, and kept their spirits high despite encountering trouble getting their robot to function like they thought it would! They received good to excellent scores on the robot, project, and Core Values judging. 

The team met with Mr. Anders Ibsen, St. Patrick Catholic School alumnus and Tacoma’s Deputy Mayor, last week to present their ideas about bringing greywater reuse to the City of Tacoma. He was impressed by their presentation, and we will continue this conversation to show the students how their voice is heard by our elected officials.

Robotics will start again next fall, with more information to come later this spring.
