We thought our season was over but FIRST had other plans! We were selected as one of 5 teams to attend the world championship in addition to those already qualified through the Eastern Superregional. We are extremley excited to go and we can’t wait to see all the other teams in St. Louis!
Igutech FTC attended the annual FTC PA State Championship on Saturday Feb 25, 2017. Although our robot Falcon is a preformance machine, luck was not on our side and we preformed poorly in the rankings. We also nominated our mentor, Coach Harald, for the compass award because he’s an inspirational mentor!
Above is the video which the team created in complete secrecy and which won first place. Coach harald didn’t know he was nominated untill the video played!
On Saturday December 10th 2016, FTC team igutech attended the Hat Tricks Qualifiying tornament in Horsham PA. After some brief problems with the autonomous software (the flywheel was running in reverse!) our robot ran better than it ever did before! We are extremly proud to have won:

Several team members are planning on voulnteering at the East Superregionals and Tilman’s going to be attending World’s as a Dean’s list finalist.
