At the beginning of the season, we noticed that every year, numerous first-year FTC teams join our home league in Austin only to drop FTC shortly after. To remedy this, we organized and hosted a student-volunteer-run invitational tournament on March 4th for first and second-year FTC teams. We strove to create an environment conducive to student success in order to inspire the participants to continue their first journey. In the end, over a dozen teams attended our event, pushing our reach to new heights. Below is the live stream with the results from the event.
We beat the 1st place team in the world twice in the Finals matches and won the competition along with teams 7172, Technical Difficulties, and 12835, Pixelated!
We placed 2nd in the world at the competition with teams 8644 Brainstormers and 11212 Clueless!
