The 2018 season was another great year. We competed in the Northern Lights Regional and in the Medtronic Foundation Regional. At Northern Lights, we became the 3rd alliance captain and we fought hard but were unable to beat the first place alliance, and placed in 2nd overall. In addition, Talon Robotics was honored to receive the Entrepreneurship Award. As the finalist alliance captain, Talon Robotics was given a “wild card” invitation to attend the World Championship Competition in Detroit, MI at the end of April.   Once at worlds, we had our best showing yet and were able to work with some amazing teams. We ranked 5th in the Carson Division and we became the 4th highest ranking of any Minnesota team at Worlds ever, and we ranked 33rd in the world!
