Robotics Team Inspiration advancing to World Championship!
Team Inspiration, based in Stonebridge Estates, won Inspire Award second place and the Finalist Alliance Award at the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Regional Championship on March 1. Out of 36 teams that competed at the Regional Championship, only three teams advance to the World Championship, and Team Inspiration is one of them. The World Championship will be held in Houston April 15-18. (This championship was scheduled but might be changed based on the coronavirus crisis)
Not only did Team Inspiration share their experiences and knowledge locally, they shared with students in Benin, Nigeria, and Togo of Africa; and Bolivia, Brazil and Paraguay of South America. In addition, they traveled to Benin and Paraguay with FRC Team Spyder to host the first national robotics competition and scrimmage in those countries.
