We've crossed the halfway point in the CHARGED UP FIRST Robotics Competition season this year! A month from now competition season will be over, but it's time to focus on Week 4.
Revere High School in Revere, MA, was excited to host 40 teams from Connecticut, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont and Massachusetts! for the 2023 NE District Greater Boston Event.
The playoff matches were all so close, with many alliances seeing scores within 5-7 points of their opponents. We can't wait to see the first full grid in New England!
This weekend another New England team took home two blue banners, the maximum number possible from one district qualifying event.
