The Mountain View High School robotics team is heading to a national tournament in Atlanta after winning the Silicon Valley regional competition this weekend.
After three days of competition, the team, known as 971, went undefeated against more than 40 other teams during the San Jose Robotics regionals, and will compete in the national FIRST competition in April.
Mountain View introduced its robot to other teams on Thursday, March 12, and participated in seeding matches throughout the weekend. On Saturday the team started playing in single competition eliminations with the other teams, and claimed its victory that evening.
Students founded the robotics team at Mountain View High School in 2002, and last year members made it to the quarterfinals in the regional competition. This will be the team's second time going to the national competition.
