A Brooklyn robotics team is headed to the world championship robotics competition in St. Louis later this month. The team is from Brooklyn Technical High School and their team name is the TechKnights. The team will represent New York City at the FIRST® World Championship on April 23-26 in St. Louis.

“The team’s performance at our past two regionals, and especially at Javits this weekend, has been outstanding. I’m extremely impressed with their level of determination. After all the hard work they put in, these kids really deserve to enjoy the thrill of  championship at St. Louis,” said Tom Curanovic, the TechKnights advisor and Senior Mechanical Engineering instructor at Brooklyn Tech.

From a press release from NYC FIRST: “Now in its 14th year, the mega-competition featured three robotics programs: FIRST Robotics Competition, FIRST LEGO® League, and Jr.FIRST LEGO® League offered by NYC FIRST, the local nonprofit affiliate of FIRST® (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) – an international nonprofit that introduces students at various grade levels to the thrill of hands-on robotics, research, teamwork and inquiry-based problem-solving, in order to nurture a lifelong passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines.”
