RP – Rank Points TBP – Tie Breaker Points HS – High Score
TBP1: For a single Team competing remotely, the Team’s Autonomous Period score for a Qualification Match is used as their TBP1. Total TBP1 is the sum of the TBP1s of all non-Surrogate Qualification Matches that a Team plays in a Tournament.
TBP2: For a single Team competing remotely, the Team’s End Game specific task score for a Qualification Match is used as their TBP2. Total TBP2 is the sum of the TBP2s of all non-Surrogate Qualification Matches that a Team plays in a Tournament.

 

Team Awards

Motivate Award Winner
UK-070 19266, Awesome Atomics, Wade Deacon High School

“The winning team was chosen because they clearly demonstrated a sense of collaboration, inclusivity and support. They involved everyone and acknowledged the invaluable skill sets each person brought to the table. What was most apparent about the winners of this award was the team’s ability to listen to one another, their extraordinary enthusiasm and sense of gratitude, both for this competition and to one another as team mates.”

Innovate Award sponsored by Raytheon Technologies
UK-165 21008, The Observatory School

“This award goes to a team that has shown respect and Gracious Professionalism to everyone they met at the FIRST Tech Challenge event. During their presentation and interview, this team showed an impressive level of confidence and knowledge in their robot, highlighting a certain component and illustrating how they would implement it in the competition. All teams performed to a very high standard on the field, but this robot consistently scored highly for their alliance.”

Think Award Winner
UK-016 20137, Tech Turtles, Cheadle Hulme High School

“The judges saw evidence of some truly excellent elements of technical problem-solving; both prior to and during the competition. A key skill of an engineer is to generate a concept and develop that into a functional article. As such, the Think Award decision was based on an outstanding element of engineering practice, recognising a team that built a mathematical model and developed it into code implemented to control their robot.”
