After a spirited competition at the FIRST Robotics Long Island Regionals this past weekend at Hofstra University, Sachem’s Aftershock 263 robotics team has qualified for the world championships.

These talented student-engineers will head to Detroit from April 25-28 and compete with the very best robotics teams in the country.

Coming out of the qualifying matches on Saturday morning at Hofstra, Sachem Aftershock earned a place as a seed team heading into alliance selection for the playoff matches. The team played as part of the third alliance, a group of teams/schools competing together, which made it as far as the semifinals.
Because of the team’s overall competitive performance at both the Long Island Regional, as well as previously at the Palmetto Regional, Aftershock 263 was invited to Detroit.

The team placed eighth overall at the Long Island Regional.
