FIRST Tech Challenge
Robotics for Youth 2020 Kickoff

Introducing Team AlphaGo! (Season Summary)
March 27, 2020
Our FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team RoboLords (FTC team 11112) was formed in 2016 during Velocity Vortex season. We started the team with six students from Eagle Ridge Middle school and soon expanded to a ten member team with students from different middle schools in the community. There was a tremendous amount of interest from our friends to join FTC and we were happy to welcome them to be part of our team. It was a great experience in our rookie year, learning the various skills and facing the challenges that came as part of FIRST Tech Challenge. We played every season thereafter and were the Virginia State Champions in the years 2018-19 and 2019-20.

We advanced to FIRST World Championship in Detroit both the years and won Third Place Team Marker Design Award in 2018-19. Through the years we were able to spread awareness about the importance of STEM literacy in education and could not resist starting and mentoring a new FTC team this season - Infinite Overload (FTC team 16129). We are also in the works of starting another FTC team in the year 2020-21. Our coach, Mr. Pamal, has been our inspiration throughout all these years. We are so grateful to all the guidance and encouragement that he has poured forth.
