On January 9 at the FIRST Tech Challenge tournament in Oxford, PA, two First State Robotics teams, Rhyme Know Reason and MOE 365, as well as one other Delaware team, Archmere Academy’s Robauktics, were so successful that they earned invitations to the Pennsylvania State FTC Championship, February 27 in York, PA.
- Rhyme Know Reason earned the Think Award for their engineering notebook,
- MOE earned the Connect Award for interaction with the STEM community,
- Robauktics won all 5 matches in the qualifying round of the field competition.
While all three teams competed in semi-final rounds, Robauktics and Rhyme Know Reason posted scores during qualifying matches to be named captains. Archmere’s Robauktics continued on to play in tournament finals.
In addition to invitations to attend PA State Championship, all three teams will compete again on Saturday, February 6, at the Diamond State Championship at Delaware State University in Dover, DE. Join in cheering them on! Both championship events are free and open to the public.
