FIRST Championship Day 3 (4/26)

After winning 3 matches and losing 2 matches at Tesla field yesterday, we did our best today and won 2 matches and lost 3 matches, which means we won 5 matches and lost 5 matches in the qualification round. But we are so glad that our score in HAB climb is the best among 68 teams in Tesla field! Yay!


In the evening, we ate dinner with FRC Team 2500 Herobotics at Ford’s Garage. As you can probably guess, there were some classic Ford cars there and it was a really fun experience to have in Detroit.

We’ll be competing at FIRST Championship again!

As we have shared through previous posts on our social media, we won Chairman’s Award at FRC Hawaii Regional last week and got qualified for the world championship (FIRST Championship) in Detroit! We are so glad that we get to compete at the worlds again!

 

~Award ‘ s Description ~

It was created to keep the central focus of FIRST Robotics Competition on the ultimate goal of transforming the culture in ways that will inspire greater levels of respect and honor for science and technology, as well as encouraging more of today’s youth to become science and technology leaders.
