The McBride Middle School First Robotics Team has had a great season. The team is formally known as:
First Tech Challenge Team 14670, Tiger Robotics

FIRST hosted a virtual competition this season for teams that could not build a robot or compete traditionally due to the pandemic. It is called the FIRST Innovation Challenge. McBride's Team, Tiger Robotics, advanced all the way to the World Finals, being 1st Alternate to the 20 finalist teams chosen, hence coming in 21st!

Through the FIRST Innovation Challenge presented by Qualcomm, students in the FIRST Tech Challenge will explore what it means to be an innovator and find solutions to society’s greatest challenges that impact the world for generations to come.

Through the FIRST GAME CHANGERS themed challenge, participating teams will:

1. Identify a problem or opportunity to help people (or a community of people) keep, regain, or achieve optimum physical and/or mental health and fitness through active play or movement.
2. Design a solution to seize the opportunity or solve the problem.
3. Actualize their innovation by creating a business model and developing a business pitch.
4. Advance their skills by using technology in their solution development process and/or design.

Tiger Robotics' Innovation is called "MealHunt". MealHunt is an app, combining the features of pokemon Go and scavenger hunt type apps. The user can set up the game in a local park, neighborhood or backyard. Using landmarks set up by the user, the game will assign an ingredient to healthy food recipes. The goal of the game is for the users to compete and find the ingredients for the recipe in a scavenger hunt format.
