East Cobb Robotics, FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) team 4910 is excited to announce that for the 3rd year in a row, its students have again earned a spot at the FIRST Robotics World Championship in Houston, Texas. East Cobb Robotics (ECR) is a community-based, not for profit organization providing STEM education to high-school aged students through its participation in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Each year, over 3600 teams from around the world are provided a ‘game’, challenging them to design, build, and program a robot in order to compete. They have just six weeks to accomplish this goal, followed by tournaments where their team strives to outperform the robots of other teams. At the end of these tournaments, the top 400 teams earn an invitation to the championship event.
This year, the students of ECR won their two qualification tournaments in the Peachtree District as first place winners, and finished third overall in Georgia after a challenging District Championship event in Athens. We are very proud of their accomplishments and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for them. Over the five years of our existence, ECR has won numerous awards including Engineering Inspiration, Safety, Quality, Team Spirit, Excellence in Engineering, and Gracious Professionalism as well as finishing as part of the third highest ranked alliance at the 2017 World Competition.
