Video: Thetford robotics team qualifies to compete in a NH/VT championship

And from there, the team could earn a spot in the VEX World Championship!

The Thetford Academy team — one of two from the school who competed — earned a trip to the Twin States competition by making it to the final round of a competition in North Conway, N.H., last weekend.

From Thetford Academy:

The State Championship is where the five best teams from NH/VT can earn an invitation to the VEX World Championship. Our performance at this tournament represented a great improvement over our last meet at Trinity High School in Manchester, NH, two weeks ago. Both teams made significant improvements to their robots in the two weeks in-between, with the C team building an entirely new robot from scratch.

The state championship will take place at Manchester Community College in February.
