The robot designed by Silverside and built with help from teammates was entered in the FIRST Tech Challenge where robots competed in a game of double-sided tick-tack-toe. Silverside and his team will be competing in the FTC (First Tech Challenge) Championships in St. Louis against teams from around the world next week.
