photo 1photo 3Congratulations and kudos to BOTH of the Valley Oaks Tehachapi Lego Robotics teams!! Both the Tehachapi Turbines and the Tehachapi Knights have qualified to compete in the Central Valley FLL Regional Championship Competition being held December 13, 2014. Well done, teams!

After participating in 2 different scrimmages (one local and one out of town), both teams traveled to Tulare, CA November 15 to participate in the Southern Central Valley Qualifying Meet. Not only did teams need to have competitive scores in the robot games, but qualifying meant high scores in all other areas of judging: Core Values, Project Presentation, and Robot Design and Performance. Both VOCS Tehachapi teams met all qualification requirements, and are advancing to the next level. Good job to all of you!

A huge thank you to coaches of both teams; Coaches Woolf, Coach Jenifer, and Coach Tim did a wonderful job of helping the students overcome obstacles and learn how to practice “core values” as well as programming robots! Thanks, Coaches!

Also, we wish to thank the teams’ sponsors. We appreciate all the help we received from Brighthouse Networks, Cal Portland Cement, All Access Computers, and Tehachapi Martial Arts-thank you very much!

Most especially, THANK YOU to all the parents and your tireless commitment to making all the practices and meetings and for making sure the all homework was completed. You are the best!
