Sachem Robotics wins SBPLI Long Island Regional, Headed to World Championships

 

Sachem Aftershock Team 263 won the SBPLI Long Island Regional for the second year in a row!

Sachem has qualified for the World Championships in St. Louis, which take place in late April. The FIRST Robotics Long Island Regional Competition (FRC), hosted by SBPLI, is held annually in the spring at Hofstra University.

The competition brings together teams of students and their mentors from roughly 50 Long Island schools, schools from the Metropolitan area as well as visiting teams from around the country and abroad.

The competition includes two short games played by the robots, where the students program and remotely control them in competition rounds on the playing field.
