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!
