If the purpose of the Arizona Regionals was to get kids excited and celebrate technology, then the competition at Hamilton High School scored big. It was like a sports event; school colors, music, fun, team spirit and fans. Westwood Robotics Team 2478 was there to play the game and had winning on their mind.
In the practice rounds the robot had problems. The team came together. They would move forward by trial and error. They would need to monitor and adjust. For a first year team they did well and finished in the top 12.
