Bellarmine (Tacoma) Robotics Team Receives $10,000 Grant

The Bellarmine Preparatory (Tacoma) School Robotics team recently received a $10,000 Best Buy Community Grant. The grant will be used to extend the team's community outreach with local Boys and Girls Clubs.

"The goal for the grant was to be able to serve teens in underserved areas," Robotics Co-Director Joy Taylor said. "The first year will be specifically geared towards working with Al Davies (Boys and Girls Club)."

Louis Peters of Best Buy was involved selecting grant recipients. He shared that he was extremely impressed "with the program, and that he believed that they represented the school in the best way possible."

"This program is exactly the kind of program that Best Buy envisioned supporting when we came up with this Community Grants program," Peters said. 

Because the team will be working with additional kids, more equipment is needed. The grant will allow for the purchase of new Robotics Kits and laptops to accommodate this need. 

"Our goal is for our students to become strong leaders." Taylor said, "This grant process was a great opportunity for them to work on those skills."
