LigerBots has won the FIRST impact award, the most prestigious award in FIRST! Because we won this award, we were invited to compete in the upcoming New England District Championship.

“Part of the reason why we won was because of the unique story we had, especially because of our circumstances this build season.” said FIRST impact team member Felicia J, “Another reason why we won is because of the efforts that all the members of our first impact team went through, going to meetings 6 days a week”.

We wouldn’t have won this award without our FIRST impact award team, who presented to judges about what the LigerBots does, how we impact the community and spread FIRST values.

We performed well in the competition, and are currently in 20th place out of 185 teams in New England.

“This competition taught us a lot, we saw massive improvements on our consistency. We have identified some weak spots that we can work on. This competition has left a certain spot in my heart!” said drive team member Emily P.

Next week starts the New England District Championship, April 4-6, which we are able to attend due to us qualifying for the Engineering Inspiration and FIRST impact award!
