Team 1218, SCH Vulcan Robotics, from Springside Chestnut Hill Academy partnered with the Brighton TechnoDogs and the ThunderChickens—both from Michigan—and Team Rembrandts from the Netherlands.
For perspective on the scale of this accomplishment, there are 8 teams out of about 7,000 total worldwide teams in the FIRST Robotics Competition who win this honor each year (one alliance in a Detroit event and one in Houston).
