South Tech Engineering Students Win Gateway Robotics Challenge!
The South Tech Electronics and Robotics engineering students FIRST Robotics Team 1658 competed at the Gateway Robotics Challenge October 1st at Hazelwood Central High School. 26 teams from Missouri and Illinois competed.
After 8 qualification matches, Team 1658 was seeded number 1 for the finals and went undefeated to win the tournament.
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 2016 FIRST Stronghold game rules on an official FRC playing field. This event gives new students the opportunity to experience an FRC competition.
“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 2017.” said Mr. Rola the Engineering Instructor. Congratulations South Tech Engineering FIRST Robotics Team 1658!
