FIRST World Championships stats:
- 26000 spectators
- 350 team
- 3200 competitors
We had a unique opportunity to compete with the 105 best FLL teams in the world. During the four days of competition we presented our robot to the judges, we also let others try our research presentation product, the Fencing Master and we also showed our teamwork. On the awards ceremony, the judges awarded the top 3 teams in all the subcategories and they also gave out 6 special awards. Our research presentation product, an interactive fencing target called Fencing Master, which helps fencers train accuracy and footwork caught the judges attention and won the 3rd place in the Innovative solution award.
Even though we lacked only a couple of points to get from the preliminaries to the robot game quarter finals, our robot finished with a nice 17th among the 106 competing robots.
In the end we came home very satisfied with the results, with lots of new experiences and even more ideas and plans to the future.
