Robotics team 4546 has advanced to the First Tech Challenge World Championships in St. Louis, and will compete today through Saturday. Teams must undergo hardware and software inspections, set up pit areas, go to judging, compete in the qualifying rounds and hope to make it to the finals.

“They’re going to stream everything live so you’ll know what’s going on in the qualifying rounds. It’s like going to college where you know everyone is really smart. Well at the world championships, everyone there is really, really good,” sponsor Rad Allen said. “It’s going to be intense.”

A total of 128 teams from around the world will battle it out over the course of the next three days. The other countries participating include Australia, Bulgaria, Canada, China, India, Italy, Jamaica, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand Romania, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Spain and Taiwan.
