Team 1741 Red Alert Robotics competed at the FRC World Championships from Wednesday, April 22, to Saturday April 25. There were over 600 other teams in St. Louis, and we competed with 71 other teams on the Newton division.
There were teams from all over the world including, Brazil, Canada, Mexico, China, Turkey, the Netherlands, Taiwan, Australia, the United States, and Israel. We finished qualifications ranked 31st on a very competitive field and were chosen by the 6th seed alliance. We want to thank FRC Teams 1983 “Skunk Works Robotics” and 3641 “The Flying Toasters” for working with us during eliminations!
Indiana had a great presence at the championships overall with 14 teams and 9 making the eliminations! Congratulations to all the other Indiana teams for a job well done!
We learned a lot during our time in St. Louis and look forward to putting all those lessons to good use next build season! Keep an eye out for us this summer as we will be very active in the community. We will have our summer camp, library demos, and many other opportunities for the community to learn about STEM and FIRST robotics!

This weekend FIRST team Red Alert 1741 attended the Indiana State Competition. The first Thursday of state we had many students helping volunteer for field reset. The following day we had a very successful round of qualification matches and even more students volunteering for field reset and as VIPs. We ended that Friday as the seventh place seed. On Saturday our team was sixth seed, but moved into fourth by the end of alliance selections. We were the alliance captains and invited teams 1747 and 4982. Although our alliance didn’t move onto semi-finals, we had a great day and were excited to win the gracious professionalism award. To end the day FIRST team Red Alert was excited to hear that WE ARE GOING TO THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
We have big plans for World and are all very excited to Make It Loud in St. Louis. FIRST team 1741 Red Alert looks forward to finishing off our season strong and are wishing good luck to all teams.
