From April 24th – 27th, Team 1923, The MidKnight Inventors traveled to Detroit, MI, to compete at the World Championship! Our team competed on the Darwin Division along with other top tier robots from around the world. We entered the Playoffs with the 5th seeded alliance: 16 Bomb Squad from Mountain Home, Arizona, 5084 FridgeBot from Corunna, Michigan, and 868 The TechHOUNDS from Carmel, Indiana. We left the Championship as Division Quarterfinalists.
St. Louis was our final major competition of the 2019 season, and it was an amazing experience. Our achievements this year as a team were truly remarkable, from winning the Excellence in Engineering Award at Montgomery, the Quality Award at Lehigh, and a huge congrats to one of our build directors, Aadil Makkar, for winning the Dean’s List Finalist award at Lehigh and our mentor, Sarath Jaladi, for receiving the Woodie Flowers Finalist Award nomination! We hope that 2020 will be an even stronger and more successful season, but until then, we will continue to work hard for our upcoming off-season events.
