Milwaukee Recap and Preparing for St. Louis

Team 537 just got back from an exciting and energizing regional in Milwaukee! Congratulations for all the teams that participated in the event and the team social (Milwaukee Admirals game)! Team 537 also won the Gracious Professionalism award sponsored by Johnson & Johnson! A summary put together by our Video team has been placed below for your viewing. And now, we’re ready for the big event! Due to the fact that Charger Robotics won the Regional Chairmen’s Award at the Lake Superior Regional in Duluth a few weeks ago, we have been invited to attend the FIRST® World Championship held in St. Louis. This event will take place on April 25th through the 27th. More information about travel information for Team 537 members attending will be released in a later email by Hinytz or Alyssa.

St. Louis, here we come!

At the 2013 FRC Lake Superior Regional, Team 537 took home the Regional Chairman’s Award. The Chairman’s Award is presented to the team that best represents FIRST’s goal of inspiring children and young adults about science and technology by making it fun. Charger Robotics earned the award by serving as a role model for other teams. Winning the award qualified Team 537 to advance to the FIRST® World Championships in St. Louis. This is Team 537’s third regional Chairman’s award and is just one more to a short list of teams to have received this prestigious award more than two times.
