Today the CyberKnights are leaving on a long bus ride to St. Louis Missouri for the FIRST Robotics World Championship event! 600 FIRST Robotics teams from around the world will compete for the title of World Champions. This event also has conferences, college fairs, and business exhibitions so it is an amazing experience for everyone who attends.
For the competition, the 600 teams are split into 8 “Subdivisions” which consist of about 75 teams each. These Subdivisions act the same as normal competitions where teams participate in Qualification rounds to determine rank then Elimination rounds to determine the Subdivision winners. The winners of each Subdivision then compete against each other on the field to determine the World Championship Winners!
The CyberKnights will be in the Newton Subdivision and are ready to represent Southington, CT to the world and perform our very best!!
