The Buchanan High School robotics team is moving on.

After taking home multiple honors at the Monterey Bay Regional last month, including a first-place banner, the Bird Brains qualified for the FIRST Championship, a four-day robotics competition in Texas.

Buchanan High’s talented robotics students will take part in an event that unites tens of thousands of robotics students from around the world to compete for the highest honors.

As an added bonus, students will have the opportunity to network with educators, industry professionals, sponsors, organizations, and colleges/universities who support robotics.

The FIRST Championship runs from April 17-20 at George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston.
