Our second season competition was March 24-26th at Mason High School in Lansing. This time we came with a climbing arm on our robot ready to score some extra points! Once again we did really well and fought our way to 1st place after all qualifying matches!! Excited to be in the 1st seed spot! Big thanks to our alliance partners, team 2612 The Corsairs and team 1504 Desperate Penguins.
Losing in the quarterfinals due to a few malfunctions was discouraging, but our spirits rose as we won the Industrial Design Award sponsored by General Motors! What an honor to win an award that celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the game challenge.
A few weeks later after all Michigan district competitions were finished, we found that we qualified to move on to the State Championships! Onward to Grand Rapids!
We learned more from our challenges during the weekend and once again went on to regroup, make some changes and get ready for States!
