Hello Millerbot famlies and friends,
This was the first year that the millebots have competed in 2 competitions.
First, we went to Iowa, we placed 38th out of 61, won 4 out of our 9 games and had a ranking score of 1.22. We learned a lot from Iowa and perfected many techniques that we used at Mariucci.
At Mariucci (in Minneapolis) we did quite well, we won 7 of our 10 matches which put us in 8th place and brought us into the quarter finals. Unfortunately, we lost both matches that would’ve allowed us to move on in the tournament. Overall we are very proud of being in the top 8 and being able to choose 2 teams to go with us into quarter finals.
Last but certainly not least, we won an award at Mariucci. We won the Regional Engineering Inspiration Award, and that is allowing us to go to … WORLDS, YAAAAAAAY. Our entrance fee is being covered by NASA because of the award.
Worlds this year is being hosted in both Detroit and Houston. We will be traveling to Detroit for Worlds. Dates are the 24th of April to the 28th of April.
We will keep you posted for more information about Worlds.
