For its unique robot design, TechFire was awarded the Industrial Design Award. Sponsored by General Motors, this award celebrates form and function in an efficiently designed machine that effectively addresses the FIRST Robotics POWER UP game challenge.
Along with its alliance partners, Team 25 Raider Robotix of North Brunswick, New Jersey, and Team 5992 the Pirates from Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, New Jersey, Team 225 TechFire competed throughout the weekend and battled through the playoff rounds to win the District Event.
Winning the event qualifies all three teams to compete at the FIRST Mid-Atlantic District Championship Sponsored by Johnson & Johnson on April 4 - 7 at Lehigh University’s Stabler Arena. Winning teams will then move on to the FIRST World Championships on April 25 - 28 in Detroit, MI.
