After winning the Queen City Regional with Team Titanium and the Pink Team, we qualified for the World Championship. Most of the team flew, while some took the thirteen-hour drive. On Wednesday, we went to the Innovation Fair, where we talked with a lot of FIRST sponsors, received giveaways and saw demonstrations. We then had to set up the pit (Shoutout to MOE for transporting some of our stuff). On Thursday, the qualification matches began (Newton Division!), and our rank fluctuated throughout the day, though our robot performed consistently. During our lunch break, some went back to the Innovation Fair and others went to Scholarship Row and tried liquid nitrogen graham crackers. That night was opening ceremonies, and several inspirational speakers announced the Dean’s List winners – congrats to those who won! Roboprom was also that night and thanks to Team 399 for a great first Roboprom!
We were invited to compete at Worlds in St. Louis and we need all the help we can get! We need to raise $5000 by tomorrow morning for the registration fee. Please give whatever you can and together, we can do it!
