Kinetic Knights Off to Worlds

Kincardine | by Daryl Morris  

Kincardine Knights win Regional Robotics Championship, advance to Worlds.

Team 781 from Kincardine District Secondary School will compete to be world champions again.

The Kinetic Knights FIRST Robotics Team clinched the regional champion title in Cincinnati, Ohio over the Easter Weekend.

A total of 56 teams competed.

You might remember the Kinetic Knights took second place at the world championships last year in St. Louis, Missouri.

They will look to do better than that at this year's competition, on April 25th to the 28th again in St. Louis.

This year's challenge is called the Rebound Rumble, and the students had to build a robot to play in a basketball game.

The world championships will be streamed online and the team will post Facebook and Twitter updates.
