We had a great time competing in the Tech Valley Regional FIRST competition hosted at the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute! There was some serious competition with the other teams, but the atmosphere was permeated with the gracious professionalism that FIRST Robotics is all about. All the teams did an awesome job, and the finalists put on an impressive show. Congrats to all the teams proceeding on to the Finals!
