There was some stiff competition at the FIRST Robotics Worlds Competition in St. Louis over the weekend. The Two Harbors team, which is in its first year, held its own against teams sponsored by companies like Google and Motorola and hailing from places like Israel and Turkey.
The Agate Robotics team had to ship its robot to St. Louis in the days after the Duluth competition—no improvements are allowed between the regional and world competition—but the team is still plenty busy with fundraising efforts.

Two Duluth teams made the quarterfinals in separate FIRST Robotics regionals at the Duluth Entertainment Convention Center on Saturday. But it’s Rock Solid Robotics from Two Harbors that’s going to St. Louis.
It all started when Two Harbors High School Principal Brett Archer applied for a $6,500 grant from NASA. The money was to help fund the school’s robotics program. There was just one problem: THHS didn’t have a robotics program.
While some student teams practice on ice with sticks and others work out on the court with basketballs, the Silver Bay robotics team at William Kelley High School practices in the shop room—with robots.
The Flaming Anchors robotics team, based out of William Kelley High School in Silver Bay, will take on regional competitors next week at the University of Minnesota’s Mariucci Arena with the chance of competing at an international event.
