Landroids won NJ FTC Qualifier Inspire Award

Landroids recently won the Inspire Award and the Winning Alliance Award at the NJ FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) “Frozen Frenzy” Qualifier held at Livingston High School, NJ on 12/18/10.

While the NJ FIRST LEGO League season has came to an end, the robotics competition for the high-school FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is still in full swing.  Landroids, the only FTC team of LRC, has so far competed in two scrimmages and two qualification events as a rookie FTC team against teams from throughout the State. At each event, Landroids has consistently came home with an award.

Starting from the RoboFest FTC scrimmage on 10/22/10, Landroids received a Think Award for its Engineering Notebook design documentation. Shortly thereafter at the Brunswick Eruption scrimmage on 11/6/10 , the team was part of the winning alliance partner.  In their first official qualifying event at Moorestown on December 4, Landroids received the PTC Design Award, which recognizes design elements of the robot that are both functional and aesthetic, and incorporated industrial design elements into the solution.  This award has earned the team a seat at the NJ State Championship. However, over the past weekend at the second qualifier event , Landroids received the Inspired Award to “honors the team that performs well in all categories and is viewed by other teams as the most desirable alliance partner and by judges as best exemplifying all components of the FIRST Tech Challenge philosophy.” The Inspire Award is considered the highest award in a FTC event. Landroids is qualified to compete in the state-level competition in February 2011.
