"Robohounds" Win FIRST Robotics Competition
ST. LOUIS, MO, (SLFP.com), March 16, 2014 - An alliance including robotics teams from Clayton High School, Camdenton, Missouri and Huntington County, Indiana captured the St. Louis FIRST® Robotics Regional Championship competition held this weekend in St. Louis at the Chaifetz Arena at St. Louis University. They will be moving on to compete in the championships in St. Louis next month.
Finishing in second place was an alliance of teams from Westminster Christian Academy in St. Louis, Ladue Horton Watkins High School and Hazelwood Central High School. Along with being on the championship-winning alliance, the Camdenton, Missouri 4-H team also earned the highest award of the competition, the prestigious Chairman's Award.
More than 1,000 high school students representing more than 40 high schools from Missouri and five surrounding states participated in the FIRST Robotics Competition Regional for an opportunity to win regional recognition for design excellence, sportsmanship, teamwork and a chance to advance to the championships.
The FIRST competition is in its twenty-third season and has grown to have teams in 48 states and 61 countries. The international championships will be held in St. Louis next month and are expected to draw more than 30,000 visitors to the area for the competition April 24-26 at the America's Center and Edward Jones Dome.
"Everyone who participates in FIRST comes out a winner," said Paul Freiling, FIRST Robotics Coordinator at the Saint Louis Science Center, which serves as the primary education partner for the FIRST robotics regional competition. "You're meeting new friends, expanding your knowledge, testing your skills - all while having a great time playing the greatest sport for the mind."
The teams of high school students worked with professional mentors over a period of six weeks to design and build a robot that solves a problem using a kit of parts and a standard set of rules. Once these young inventors create the robot, their teams participate in regional competitions that measure the effectiveness of each robot, the power of collaboration and the determination of students.
Since 2011, the city of St. Louis has welcomed the FIRST International Championships and is scheduled to host the competition through 2017. Last year, the championship brought an estimated $22 million in revenue to St. Louis. FIRST Robotics Competition St. Louis Regional sponsors and volunteers come from some of the most highly regarded organizations in the area, including Boeing, Emerson, MasterCard Worldwide and the Saint Louis Science Center.
