Armored Patriots Compete

The Armored Patriots, Palma’s robotics team, competed in the FIRST Tech Challenge on Saturday, January 27th held at Cisco headquarters in San Jose. The team of 10 put their robot through its paces of retrieving and stacking blocks. After the qualifying rounds, the Armored Patriots were in 9th place, but had accumulated the third highest point total. They were selected by a qualifying team to be part of their alliance in the semi-finals. Although they did not advance to the finals, it was a good experience for the young Chieftain team and they came home pleased with the way their robot performed. You can watch the team in action at:
