FIRST Championship Houston was Amazing!

We didn’t come back home with any trophies this time, but what we did return with will last a lifetime!  Our wins were great and our losses mostly close.  We nailed our interview, thanks to local Toastmasters International coaching support

We learned a lot, met some incredible people – including Dr. Woodie Flowers! – made some new friends, and saw some spectacular robots.

Congratulations to Palm Harbor FIRST Tech Challenge team Boom Bots for captaining the Championship Winning Alliance!
