Chilean Students Compete in World Robotics Championships
Chilean Heart, Team 2576, Corporación Corazón Tecnológico y Científico de Chile, from Santiago, Chile, was one of six winning teams that will progress to the championships

LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA -- As the emcee gets the crowd pumped up, students set their robots for match play at the 2014 FIRST Robotics Competition's regional qualifier in Long Beach, California.

Soaring strains of the American and Chilean national anthems kicked off the March 21–22 competition, and cheers by secondary school students from Chile and the United States erupted during the event’s closing ceremonies, when they learned they would move on in the competition. Chilean Heart, Team 2576, Corporación Corazón Tecnológico y Científico de Chile, from Santiago, Chile, was one of six winning teams that will progress to the championships, NASA announced in a March 24 news release.

The 2014 challenge, “Aerial Assist,” is played between two alliances of three teams each. Each alliance tries to score as many goals as possible during a 150-second match. Additional points are earned when robots work together to score goals or throw and catch balls over a truss suspended above the floor as they move the ball down the field.
The 66 school robotics teams competing in the qualifier were vying for spots at the FIRST Robotics Competition World Championships, to be held in St. Louis April 23–26.

FIRST, For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is a nonprofit organization that works to inspire young people’s interest in science and technology.
