From April 22-27th, we were competing at the FIRST World Championships in St. Louis, MO. We competed alongside 128 FTC teams from around the globe. We were honored with a nomination for the Think Award. We ended up being ranked 38th, with a record of 4 wins, 5 losses, but regardless we were very pleased with our robot's performance. One match, we lost by 3 points, another we had a fluke motor controller freeze, which incapacitated our robot for the match. Overall, we had a great time! For our booth, we made an acrylic edge-lit sign using the same technique as we did for our side panels, again with help from Nexus Design. We also had other lights, and a fancy backdrop with our most generous sponsors.
We played matches alongside two international teams: Don't throw block from Taiwan, and The Siberian Beasts, from Russia.
It was very windy at the airport on the way home. Look at all the stuff we brought with us!
