World Championships Day 3!

Day two of The Worlds Competition is here! We had a close first match, we got our carabiners attached to the scale and tried climbing and but ran out of time. We lost our first match but we still fought hard. Yay Daredevils! In our second match of the day we fought hard to get power cubes on the scale, and ended up winning the match! In the third match we were grabbing power cubes as fast as we could in an effort to gain ownership of the scale, we lost this match but it was still a close game for the Daredevils.

During lunch we took a group picture of Minnesota teams at worlds. There are 31 total MN teams here in Detroit.  It was a great bonding experience and we chanted “SKOL” and “You Betcha” loud and proud. 

We are excited for tomorrow will bring with alliance selections and finals, and hope to do well!

2018 FIRST World Championship in Detroit – Ford Museum & Cobo Center

The Daredevils arrived in Detroit last night, and had a great first day of World Championships today! We started off our day with a visit to the Ford Museum, and learned about various technological developments in US history. We also saw Cobo Center (where Championships are being held), and explored the Innovation Fair, where companies can show off cool technology, and Scholarship Row, where prospective students can explore options for college. We are thrilled to be at world champs with our fellow Duluth team, the Marshall Topperbots (4230), and are excited for competition tomorrow!  Watch this site for our match schedule and a link to the live stream!

Ford was very involved in early aviation – there were many cool planes, trains and automobiles at Ford museum!

Fundraiser Wrap-up and Send Off Assembly

The Duluth East Daredevils Revel with the Daredevils Fundraiser was a success! We were able to raise $9,000.00 for our costs to the World’s FIRST Robotics Competition. Our guests connected with the team, and many people from the community came to support us.

At Duluth East High School on April 18th, the Daredevils participated in their school send-off assembly, and one of our team members, Dawson Averill who is a senior on the team, participated in a pie eating contest!
