3rd Place @ FIRST Tech Challenge BC Championship - 2022
by Lulu G.
This has been our most exciting year yet! Last weekend on February 26, 2022 we participated at the FIRST Tech Challenge BC Championship at Khalsa Secondary School in Surrey, BC. It turned out to be a memorable event for team Forces Unknown.
We are so proud of our robot - in the Robot Game, our team came in second place - which guaranteed us a spot in the elimination matches. This is the furthest we've gotten in the last two years.
On the left here, check out our amazing drivers, David and Maddi, and our programming master mind and duck deliverer, Kieran. They did an amazing job!
Even though we ended up with the second highest individual scores in the competition, we unfortunately did not make it past the semi-final round in the alliance matches. We were still super excited to have gotten as far as we did, and we know we'll do even better in the upcoming season.
It was a lot of fun to collaborate with other teams. To our surprise, we received the Connect Award and arrived in 3rd place for the Championship Inspire Award. And I, Lulu, was selected Dean's List Finalist and was invited to the World Championship in Houston Texas next month! It was such an honor to be chosen among all the amazing competing teams!
