Results of the Regional Tournament

We had a lot of fun in our regional tournament and placed pretty high with our robot score. We had some long waits for interviews and it was a really crazy day. In the end the team did amazingly well under some challenging conditions.

I am so amazed at all the tremendously wonderful comments this team has received in our rookie year. The potential of this team will be something to watch!!!

At Flint we got a 1st place trophy for our robot design and strategy!

For most of the day we were in 4th place with our robot score and then at the end we were tied for 9th place out of 56 teams! We were close to 200 points in robot score.

That's what happened in Flint.

Hard work and preparations for the regional tournament

We are working really hard this week and based on the comments received in Flint we have arranged an additional interview with a researcher that studies biomedical physics and nanotechnology. This will help us better understand our innovative idea and let us know if it is really possible.

Our robot runs are getting pretty consistent now too!

On November 6th, 2010 we went to our first tournament! At the end we all got to dance. Soon the host said "TEAM 2562" to let us know we had won FIRST PLACE out of 56 teams for Innovation and Strategy for the robot! We went wild!!

Creature Man's thoughts on our first tournament - Flint Michigan, November 6th

It was sweet!

The pit area was cool... how all the teams were cheering and you could see all the team boards. People came around and gave candy, stickers, and 'suns'. The interviews were fun because the judges were funny. One judge saw the back of my t-shirt and he called me Creature Man.

My favorite interview was the technical one, because we were able to talk about how we built the robot, the attachments and the programming. Also the dancing part was a lot of fun especially to the song "Cotton Eyed Joe" at the end. It was awesome hearing our number called and going to slap all of the judges hands.
