Local robotics team places in top-24 in worldwide competition

Last week a Michiana robotics team fought their way into the elite-8 at the First Tech Challenge, world championship.

NewsCenter 16 introduced you to the Robotarians of Northern Berrien County as they prepared for the big competition last week. They, and 400 other robotics teams, travelled to St. Louis to battle it out.

Qualifying matches put the Robotarians in their division’s top-10 in each category, but they were finally defeated after three close “best of three” matches in the division finals.

The Robotarians still claimed a spot as one of the top-24 teams out of over 3,500 teams worldwide.
