Engineering Students Two-Time Winners of Gateway Robotics Challenge

Engineering Students are Two-Time Winners of Gateway Robotics Challenge

The South Tech Electronics and Robotics Engineering FIRST Robotics Team 1658 competed at the Gateway Robotics Challenge on October 7th at Hazelwood Central High School. Our students bested 31 teams from Missouri, Illinois, and Kentucky to win the challenge for the second year running.

The Gateway Robotics Challenge is an off-season FIRST robotics competition event where teams are invited to compete using their previous season’s robots. The event was played using the 2017 FIRST “Steamworks” game rules on an official FRC playing field. This event gives new students the opportunity to experience an FRC competition as they prepare for competitions later in the season.

The South Tech “Tech Heads” aligned with “The Lutheran Roboteers” from Lutheran High School in St. Charles, Missouri and with Rosati-Kain High School in St. Louis to win the tournament.

“Our students competed with grace and professionalism. I was very proud of how they handled the pressure of this competition. They are very excited about the upcoming FIRST Robotics Season which begins in January 2018,” said Electronics and Robotics Engineering instructor Mr. Rola. Congratulations South Tech Engineering FIRST Robotics Team 1658!
