Our robotics team made some history by making it to the finals at the Houston FIRST Robotics World Championships. Out of over 3000 teams in the world, our team was 2 wins away from being the World Champions. The event had over 400 teams and is broken up into 6 fields - ours was called Newton. In just our field of 66 teams, there were teams from Australia, China, Israel, Mexico, and Turkey. We won the Newton field and went into the playoffs which were held inside of Minutemaid Park where the Houston Astros play baseball. FIRST Robotics is played with alliances of 3 robots playing against each other. Our alliance included a team from California and a team from Texas. The final 6 alliances played a round robin tournament on the "Einstein field" and our alliance was 4-1 and made it to the finals as the top seed. Two back to back technical glitches that we had not seen before kept us from being World Champions at Houston. The team was definitely sad but they are the first team from Georgia to ever make it to the finals at Houston.
