Cville Robotics Team Heads to Global Competition

Posted: Updated:

A robotics team from Charlottesville is taking its talents to the next level.  

"Defying Gravity" is competing in the First Tech Challenge World Championship. The team won the state competition earlier this year, with the best performing robot out of 120 entries.  

Now the team is preparing to go head to head with other teams from all around the world.

"We are determined I guess is the best way to say it. We have a lot of work to do. We've gotten a lot done and there are high expectations everywhere and a lot of competition, but also friendliness. Everyone is working together," said Luc Bailey, member of Defying Gravity.

The team will head to the world championship in less than two weeks. It's in St. Louis from April 24 to the 27.
