It is a special honor to participate in the World Championship. However, participating requires travel and other costs, and the RoboCorns are looking for help to defray their expenses. The following are some of the team expenses:
Registration fees: $2,000
Team T-Shirts (3 sets for 4 days): $600
Travel to Houston (kids only, not including coaches and parents): $4,000
Lodging in Houston (5 nights): $5,600
No amount is too small! We appreciate your help.
Thank you for helping send this special team to the FTC world championship. They will have worked on this for nearly nine months by the time they compete. With your help, this is an experience they will have to cherish for the rest of their lives. All donations will go to Downingtown Area Robotics, a 501(c)(3) non-profit.
This was an amazing event for us. It was our first official qualifying tournament. Not only did we finish qualifying matches undefeated in first place, we went on to be the Winning Alliance Captain and punched our ticket to the PA State Championships in March 2019!
Our efforts leading up to this event was to practice, practice, practice! We decided to not add any more functionality to our robot and instead concentrate on getting a consistent autonomous and endgame since those were where the most points were.
Thanks to our alliance partners, Team 4174, Atomic Theory and Team 14842, our Downingtown Area Robotics teammates, Spygears!
This was our first scrimmage event where we were able to compete but also be able to figure out our robot and how a tournament works. We did fairly well for a rookie team, finishing in 8th place out of 18, with a record of 3 wins and 2 losses. We had good runs, even though we had problems. Our drive team did a good job and were able to recover from mistakes quickly. Even though we were nervous, we did fine.
Today we attended the FTC kickoff at Penn State’s Great Valley Campus. We were facetiming other FTC team areas all across PA. The presenter from Penn State (the campus in York) reviewed different areas of FTC such as….
