On a cold and windy Sunday, our students placed their robotic against 26 other teams from across Southern California. Starting the day with a 6th place finish was not good enough for our students. The students regrouped for the tougher "On the Spot Challenge."
The "On the Spot Challenge" has the student rebuild, reprogram and restrategize for a brand new challenge that no one has seen before. Only given 90 minutes and no help allowed from their Coaches. In these 90 minutes, the student created a robotic that not only won the First place trophy in points for the challenge but also created a robot design that won the First place trophy in Robot Design.
These students, Kevin Le, Matthew Nguyen, Steven Pham, Daniel Tran, and Huy Tran did an amazing job and we look forward to seeing them compete in High School under the FIRST Robotics Competition.
