Wando Advanced Robotics (WAR) Team Enjoys Success at FIRST SC Regional Robotics Event
Over 750 high school students from South Carolina, North Carolina, Louisiana, Alabama, and Tennessee competed in South Carolina’s only FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) regional at the Anderson Sports and Entertainment Center. FIRST® is a global, nonprofit robotics community that prepares young people for the future through exciting and accessible k-12 robotics competitions.
Wando Advanced Robotics, FRC team 4533, “walked the Warrior way” with their perseverance of spirit through each match; engineering solutions to fix broken parts of their robot, computer drive station malfunctions, and coding solutions to help their robot drive better with each competition. These students
showed gracious professionalism and collaboration with other students from all over the Southeast to form strong unified teams. Through more than 15 matches hey showed so much heart these 3 days, and it all paid off when they competed in the Electric City Regional Finals. They missed the win by a mere 13 points in the tie-breaker.
The hard working WAR Team next heads to the Smoky Mountain Regional at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville on March 30th with their sights set on bringing home another award and earning a spot at the FRC World Championship in Houston, TX.
Wando Advanced Robotics, FRC team 4533, is open to all Mount Pleasant high school aged students.
