AZ FTC State Chamionship= at school Fiday until 10pm, wake up next day at 5:30am, leave school at uhhh- what time is it again? But, to be honest, it is worth every minute. For those who don’t know, the CocoNuts are the FTC Affiliate Partners for Arizona, which means we host the FTC kick-off, work shops, scrimmage, and state tounament. This year we had some amazing turn out, with 22 teams in attendance from Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, and California. We even had a team registered to attend from Mexico, but unfortunetly they couldn’t make the actual tournament. Next year, the event is going to grow so large we will have to run two divisions, which mean double the fields, materials, and voulenteers, but we couldn’t be more delighted.
We had a really great time today with some very competitive teams robot-wise, as well as in the running for awards like the Inspire Award, which is for just that, a team that inspires others. So, thank you to all the teams we saw today, you all truely did great, and congrats to the two teams that will be progressing on to the World Championships in April. The two teams were team 2844 (Valley-X), winning the Inspire Award, and team 4314 (Aero Squadron) was the winning alliance captian.
So, thank you again to everyone who was there, if you couldn’t make it, some videos will be up on our YouTube channel soon. It was great to see what a positive impact we have on people, and it was for sure worth giving up two build days.
