Walton Robotics FIRST Team 2974 Pathtag
FIRST is a nonprofit organization founded by famed inventor Dean Kamen to promote Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) careers among young people. The vehicle for making this happen is a program of competitive robotics tournaments for children as young as Kindergarten through high school.
In 2013, Walton Robotics Team 2974 decided to do something special to leave a lasting impression on the people they "crossed paths with" at their competition. They created a Pathtag to give to other attendees!
Lisa Malice, one of the team's mentors, said "The pathtags were a big hit with the students because it was a unique give-away and because of the creative approach to spreading our message. Geocachers I met loved it, but the muggle families I talked with were really intrigued! We are starting to see log ins pop up on our tag map, including the ones I sent to Australia and Oregon to collectors who agreed to place them in geocaches."

"The peeps at Pathtags are probably the best peeps in the world! They will go out of their way to make sure you get a wonderful product! They should be very proud! I'm a superman fanatic and have been since I was a little girl watching the show in black and white with my dad so this tag is and will always be my favorite! Detail is stunning and just an all around classy tag! Keep up the awesome work!
"Wow... I knew it was just going to be black and silver but the detail you did made it pop! I love it! This is my third tag in 2 1/2 months. I think I'm addicted :) But every one I have submitted have come out better than I thought possible!
Thanks for all your great work on all the tags!
"I love to trade pathtags with other geocachers! My tag is "one way" I can share my faith.
"I have to agree with others here about the craftsmanship of these tags. I'm sure I'm biased, but these are everything I could possibly have hoped for. I had the design for a second tag in hand, and was waiting to see if I was satisfied with the first. I submitted the second design the same day I received the first. I'm now trading some, and leaving my mark in every cache that will hold a Pathtag. :)
"When I found my first pathtag I moved it to another geocache not knowing what I had found. After learning more about them, I found another a few months later and I kept it. Then another few months went by and I had the priviledge of meeting Jellyfish and trippy1976 at an event, within minutes I was hooked! Ed and Mike not only were able to answer my questions, they gave me a few tags to help fuel the desire to create, gift and trade my own. I've since created 2 tags with 2 more planned for the near future, with more to follow.
Another pathtag addict is born, thanks for helping with the addiction! ~Lion
"We just wanted to say what a great job you did with our pathtags! They are absolutely wonderful. These are such great ideas and we will be proud to trade them with other people. Good job!! Thank you so much!!!!
"Fantastic job with my Geowoodstock VII tags! They turned out even better than I expected - and they were an absolute hit in the community! :)
Thanks for all you do,
"What an awesome finished product! The tag just blew me away when I opened the package I received in the mail. This tag was kept in mind as sort of an heirloom. Not only will I be trading and dropping in caches, Ill be giving these to my family members with pride. Beautiful tags. I might have to do a refill!
"What do you design for your very first Pathtag? I decided to dedicate this, my signature piece, to my dad and three uncles who worked for and retired from Lockheed. My dad's first and favorite plane was the P38. The mountains represent where our home became after his retirement, and the Lockheed Martin star shines in the background. My designer captured it perfectly. I love it and now love learning to trade. Yeah, trading and designing.....a whole new life .......
"Wow!! My flower tag really came out awesome! After sending it back several times, I was afraid it wasn't going to come out right. But I was wrong! It came out great! Thank you so much for all your hard work!
