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!

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!

North Star Regional Day 3!

Today was the final day of the North Star regional. The day started off strong with a win in the our first match, and that streak continued, as we won most of the qualifying matches today. We were then picked for a spot on the 4th seed alliance, whom with which we progressed through all our quarter-final matches and through our first semi-final, until we loss in the second semi-final. We’re thrilled to have gone this far in the competition, and we thank our alliance partners: Team 3750, Gator Robotics from Badger, MN, and Team 3871, Trojan Robotics from Worthington, MN!

Northstar Regional Day 1

The day started early, with the Daredevils loading the bus at 4:00am, and getting to the arena at 7:30am. We set up our pit, and got ready for competition and practice matches. Unfortunately, we were unable to make it to our first practice match, as we were still working on our robot.  However, we made it to all of our other matches perfectly fine. We’re ecstatic to start competing in the competition tomorrow.
