It's a WINNING Combination!
Two rookie FIRST Technology (FTC) Robotics Teams were formed in September, 2013 by the Creative Learning Collaborative and the Titanium Titans #4467 Robotics Team. www.titaniumtitans.org. On Saturday, January 18, 2014, both advanced to the Semifinals at the Southwestern PA FTC Regional Tournament held at Shady Side Academy in Fox Chapel. Team Tech-No-Logic #7143 qualified as the 4th ranked alliance captain for the Semifinals, and Team A.I.R. #7058 was chosen as an alliance partner for the 3rd ranked alliance team. Tech-No-Logic was knocked out of the finals after experiencing electronic problems in competition, while A.I.R.'s alliance went on to win the Finals match in the last round. A.I.R. #7058 will now advance to the FTC PA State Championship on Saturday, March 1, 2014 at Millersville University.Congratulations to both teams of 7th-9th grade students for successfully competing against teams that have much more experienced and older team members. Thank you to all of the mentors and sponsors who made it possible for the teams to be so successful!
