The upper school robotics team is in Houston this week for the FIRST Championship, which includes teams from more than 60 countries. The team qualified after last month’s second place finish at the Sacramento Regional, held at the University of California, Davis, where it sailed through the seeding rounds into the quarterfinals. After winning a tie breaker to advance to the semifinals, the team had to make spot repairs to their robot’s elevator system to win another tie breaker. While the robot was too damaged to prevail in the finals, second place was enough to secure the team’s trip to Houston. Best of luck!
