Tomorrow's Engineers & Scientists Learning About STEM
FTC Team #13197
We had a fun time competing at the Illinois State Championship last weekend! We were the second alliance captain in the Cooper division with a record of 4-1 and we made it to the division finals along with our partners 6287 Vertigo and 7129 Roboraiders. Although we did not advance, we still learned a lot and had a lot of fun. We would like to wish good luck to all the teams that advanced to worlds!
On February 2nd, we went to our regional at Manual Academy. Although we ranked low in our robot performance, our team won the 3rd place Inspire award as well as the 1st place Connect award. We qualified for the Illinois State Championship which is February 23 at Elgin Community College and we have been meeting every day to prepare.
