We Won the Rockwell Collins Innovate Award at Worlds!!!

Whoa, what a week. The FTC World Championship was a four day event of awesome robotics. After three days of qualification matches, we finished fourteenth out of 64 teams in the Edison division. Unfortunately we were not selected by any of the alliance captains to play in the divisional semi-finals. Then came the awards ceremony. The awards for the Worlds Championship are contested for by the amazing 128 teams at the event. Therefore, winning an award is very prestigious. The Rockwell Collins award is given to the team whose robot/robot component displays 'out of the box' thinking in solving the challenges associated with the game. We were overjoyed for just getting nominated of this award at such a high level of competition. But that's nothing compared to the feelings we got when we were announced the winners of the award. Winning that award was a big deal for us, and ended the season with a high note. Thank you to all of the judges and volunteers who made this possible, as well as our mentors and sponsors for giving us this opportunity.
