We are returning to the VEX Robotics World Championships! But this year we have two teams: 9421 and 9421X and that means it is more expensive.
The full budget for the trip is close to $7000 (for hotel rooms, registrations, transportation, food, etc. It adds up fast). But both teams are strong this year and have a lot of promise. 9421 is one of the top teams in New England and 9421X is one of the top teams in Robot Skills in New England.
9421- Triple Threat – were the
Tournament Finalists at the Framingham Nothing But Net Tournament on January 9, 2016
Tournament Champions at the Nothing But Net Qualifying Tournament on January 16, 2016
Tournament Champions at the Nothing But Net Qualifying Tournament on February 13, 2016

9421X – FHS Robotics X – were the
Programming Skills winner at the Framingham Nothing But Net Tournament on January 9, 2016,
and the Tournament Champions at the Nothing But Net Qualifying Tournament on January 16, 2016
