Mullen High School Robotics Team Competes in World Championship

by Michael Gordon, Marketing & Communications Associate
Denver, Colorado – Mullen’s Robotics Team, proudly represented their school and the state of Colorado as one of the best robotics teams in the world at the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) World Tournament.
The best FIRST Tech Challenge teams in the world competed at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Downtown Houston, TX earlier this month. With the help of their alliance partners, BAY Robotics from Wisconsin and Iterative Intentions from California, Mulen won the Jemison division, earning them a coveted invitation to compete in the final four. Although their alliance narrowly lost in the semifinals, Mullen’s performance greatly surpassed all expectations and demonstrated that they had undoubtedly built and programmed one of the best robots at the tournament.

“I am personally very grateful to Mullen High School for allowing the Robotics program to exist. My son was very excited to participate in this program, even before he started at Mullen. Robotics is more than just building robots and coding, the program at Mullen has given my son the possibility to keep developing lifelong skills like; teamwork, social skills, leadership, problem-solving, professionalism, healthy competition, logical thinking, creativity, confidence, interaction with technology, responsibility, and is even enhancing his college’s applications. This program has provided my son with knowledge, and experiences, and has earned him a scholarship. The experience of going to the international competition “First Championship” in Houston Texas was unforgettable, where more than 50,000 people attended the event. I had the unique pleasure to witness a group of Mullen High School students from different grades performing and behaving as true professionals, overcoming challenges, engaging with others from all over the world, working together as one unit, collaborating with each other, getting all needed tasks done beyond exhaustion long day after long day, no doubt as a strong team, showing the Grace of God throughout all and being part of the Jemison division winning alliance. I could not express in words the pride I feel for each and every member of this wonderful robotics team.” Said Mrs. Liesel Bohre.
