Auris-sponsored teams at the FIRST Robotics Competition

Auris is proud to announce that two of our sponsored teams won awards at the 2019 FIRST Robotics Competition!

The FIRST Robotics Competition is a competition in which teams of 10 or more high school students raise funds, develop branding for the team, and build and program industrial-size robots to play a field game against competitors throughout the season. The competition provides high schoolers with as close to real-world robotics experience as they can get, and students with both technical and non-technical skills are invited to join. Seasons run from January through April, with District and Regional competitions to select qualifying teams for the FIRST Championship, which ends the season.

Auris sponsored two teams: Team 254 - The Cheesy Poofs, from Bellarmine College Preparatory in San Jose California; and Team 971 - Spartan Robotics from Mountain View High in Mountain View, California. Both teams were Regional Winners at the San Francisco Regional event. Additionally, these teams won the awards below during the season.
