Quote of the Week
“You see things; you say, ‘Why?’ But I dream things that never were, and I say ‘Why not?”
George Bernard Shaw
On March 15th and 16th Ranger Robotics competed in their first competition of the season. The Finger Lakes Regional, at RIT, was the first time that Team 3015 showed off what their robot, Skyline, could do. With 48 teams there, and only 3 winners, the pressure was on. Team 3015, along with Team 870, RICE, and Team 271, Mechanical Marauders, pulled out a 2-1 victory over the opposing alliance, and secured their spots in the 2019 World Championships in Detroit, Michigan. Ranger Robotics will compete again on March 29th and 30th in Long Island, New York, at the SBPLI #2 Regional. Ranger Robotic would like to congratulate Teams 340, 3003, and 120, for their hard work and wish them luck in their coming competitions! Ranger Robotics would also like to recognize Team 2638, for The Regional Chairman’s Award, and Team 3193, for The Regional Engineering Inspiration award! Congratulations and Good Luck at World’s!
