The Outliers Robotics team finishes in second place in the New England Championships

Congratulations to the Outliers Robotics team for an impressive showing in the New England Championships, where they faced off against the region’s 96 top teams. The Outliers got off to a rocky start on the first day as their robot was plagued with problems. The team pulled together and systematically worked through each problem—by the end of the second day, the team’s entry was statistically one of the top robots in the world!

On the third day, the Outliers and their alliance sailed through the playoffs, winning every match until the finals. While they easily won the first match of the finals, they unfortunately lost the next two by narrow margins. In addition to coming in second place, the Outliers also won the Autonomous Award for their vision system, controls, and one-of-a-kind shifting gearboxes.

They’ll head off to the World Championships in Houston over April Break. Best of luck, Outliers—we’re rooting for you!
