They may have been far from home, but that did not stop FIRST Robotics Team 5414 Pearadox from dominating at the Colorado Regional in Denver, CO.
Out of 52 teams, Pearadox impressed judges and the competition in both technical and non-technical aspects. They brought home the Entrepreneurship Award, recognizing excellence in developing a business model and a sustainable plan for team growth.
On the playing field, Pearadox was picked for the first-seed alliance, rounding out an impressive line-up excelling at such tasks such as scoring points autonomously and working with alliance members to have two robots lifted at least twelve inches off the ground.
Pearadox swept the Quarterfinals and Semifinals, earning a finalist spot and a coveted ticket to the World Championship. This makes the third year in a row that Pearland ISD will be represented at the FIRST World Championship.
By combining a strong robot with excellence in communication, entrepreneurship, and both technical and non-technical skills, Pearadox showed that they are a world-class team, both on and off the field.
The public is invited to watch Pearadox for free at their upcoming competitions:
