Regional Robotics

Upton had two teams in the Wyoming FIRST Tech Challenge Regional Robotics Championship meet. Twenty teams from four states competed on March 17th at Casper College.

In the morning, students had to present journals which included weekly meetings, robot malfunctions, software design, robot construction, and community service to the judges.

Before the competition began students had to go through software and hardware inspections.

In the afternoon, 25 qualification matches were conducted. Each team competed in 5 matches with another team. The Nerd Herd placed in the top four teams and then moved into the winners’ bracket to place second. The Geek Squad was chosen to compete with one of the top four teams but was eliminated after the second round.

Weston Silbaugh said, “It was really cool and we did not expect to place our first year.”
