On Saturday, March 12, 2019, five Syosset robotics teams competed at the SBPLI FIRST Tech Challenge Regional Competition, with one team advancing to the World Championship in Detroit in April. The five teams competed fiercely to qualify for the play-off stages, and four teams managed to reach the finals. The teams all had good matches, but it was Syosset Syndicate who pulled off an exceptional performance to win the entire competition and qualify for the FIRST Tech Challenge World Championships in Detroit. This is the first time a Syosset Robotics Team qualified for the World Championships. We wish the team good luck as they work rigorously for the big event.
