 (ABC 6 News) -- Dave Bosma teaches 9th grade physical science, chemistry, and physics at Alden - Conger High School.

"I'm a tough teacher, but I think they appreciate the fact that I push them," says Bosma.

And on his days off, he goes the extra mile as the advisor for the schools Supermileage Club.

"We do a lot of projects and we build stuff." Stuff like high mileage cars and robots.

Last year they were one of 25 groups in the state to compete in the First Robotics competition. This year, they want to go to the international one.

Teaching his students that science plays a huge role in our daily lives. "I also farm besides, and I have technology on my farm, so you can't just grab a wrench now a days, you have to use technology and program," says Bosma.

A lesson everyone can appreciate.
