Southeast Regional 2 2021-22 results

Our final teams of the season were summoned at the RAF London Museum to battle the season’s FIRST Tech Challenge game, FREIGHT FRENZY. 20 teams stepped up to the game field in fearless alliances putting their hard earned skills and strategies to the test. The region’s electric game play and roaring energy did not disappoint as teams scored the highest points seen this season.  We salute all teams who made it to the regional for their resilience, determination and creativity shown this season from both experienced and new teams alike. May you boldly continue to reach new heights of excellence for seasons ahead.

Here’s how they scored on the day…

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

Judges Award Winner

UK-279, 19529, Brighton College

“The winning team for the judges award was chosen because they were able to assemble their robot in a very short period of time. this challenge has been a walk in the beach for them and I’m sure they’ll remember to charge their batteries for the next event.”

 

Judges Award Winner

21063, Initium Robotics, Haileybury Academy

“This award goes to a team which have navigated through a number of challenges; impressing the judges through their ability to adapt their design to available materials. They’ve come a long way to attend the competition, showing a clear passion to develop STEM and robotics in their home country.”

 

Control Award sponsored by Arm, Inc. Winner

21094, NIS KYRAN x SWB, Nazarbayev Intellectual School of Physics and Maths

“The winning team demonstrated exceptional technical ability. They produced a very sensitive and precise robot with exceptionally sophisticated input, process and output. This team’s branding and swag was both sweet and ahead of the rest.”

 

Motivate Award Winner

UK-378, 21196, Norwood Industries, The Norwood School

“This was a hard choice to make, but one team stood out with their ambitious goals for the future. The winning team was chosen because they had every team member involved and impressed the judges with their artistic fundraising efforts and generous donations to a greater cause. They would not hesitate to motivate others into the programme, nor would they limit themselves to the norms of their school.”

2nd place – UK-232, 21170, 7Oaks, Sevenoaks School

3rd place – UK-168, 20929, Vector15, Pimlico Academy

3rd place – UK-110, 21186, Auriga, Nonsuch High School for Girls

 

Innovate Award sponsored by Raytheon Technologies

UK-183, 21206, Trumpington Community College

“The winning team showcased a robot that was the result of several rounds of tweaks to overcome issues, or as engineers like to put it “unintended features”. Their big framed, yet deceptively style design capable of correcting its balance was an illustration of the uniqueness that characterises the innovation award.”

2nd place – UK-232, 21170, 7Oaks, Sevenoaks School

3rd place – UK-103, 21195, The Compton School

 

Connect Award Winner

UK-097, 21122, Lilian Baylis Technology School

“The winners are a team that worked to secure the future of the next couple of generations… a team that managed to cast a strong net and reel in an amazing amount of funding and knowledge. The team that found a way to test their robot on American soil without ever leaving the country!”

2nd place – UK-232, 21170, 7Oaks, Sevenoaks School

3rd place – UK-081, 21015, Pimlico Panthers, Pimlico Academy

 

Think Award Winner

UK-426, 21187, Equuleus, Nonsuch High School for Girls

“We reviewed a lot of impressive portfolios, ultimately our winners managed to nose ahead of the competition. Their portfolio showcased an impressive and detailed design, which is mirrored in the final result, their precision robot. Our winners have proven themselves to be a constellation of up-and-coming high-tech stars.”

2nd place – UK-378, 21196, Norwood Industries, The Norwood School

Inspire Award

UK-232, 21170, 7Oaks, Sevenoaks School

“We had several strong contenders for the Inspire Award this year. Our winners would wow our judges in many categories to the point they were far and away our outright winners. Even though this is their first year in the competition, from a school with no official robotics program, hopefully their success here will be the acorn from which mighty things grow.

“The y have encapsulated perfectly the spirit of FIRST, through student outreach programmes, STEM skill workshops with Ukranian refugees and essentially well thought out engineering principles.”
