Rising to the FIRST Skystone Challenge: A Season to Remember

Finalist Alliance award

We had a great run during our 12th season, earning our way to the FIRST Tech Challenge Florida State Championship in Jacksonville in February with a Winning Alliance bid, then making it all the way to the finals at State!

Thank you to our great alliance partners at State:

  • 9779 PIEaters (Captain)
  • 12600 Hadron Knights

and congratulations to the Winning Alliance:

  • 6433 Neutrinos
  • 4997 Masquerade
  • 7321 Charlotte Surge

With our Finalist Alliance partners.

We’re grateful to our generous sponsors: Lockheed Martin, SOFWERX and FCDI/AMRoC Fab Lab, and to our great mentors and our awesome families.  We learned a lot, had fun and leave the season with solid plans for the summer and the new season kicking off in September.

We’re know we’re fortunate to have competed early enough in the season to have been able to experience all our meets and the State event, unlike FIRST Robotics Competition teams, whose season ended early. And we send our best wishes to the great FIRST Tech Challenge teams who made it on to the Houston Championship, only to have it canceled because of COVID-19.    

We hope to host some scrimmages and demo days at AMRoC Fab Lab over the summer, along with some classes and workshops.  And we look forward to seeing teams at ROBOTICON in October.

And we especially send best wishes to all for their health and safety, and thank you again for your support and encouragement.
