For the fifth year in a row, the Kinetic Knights Robotics Team 781 travelled to St. Louis, Missouri, to compete at the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) "Recycle Rush" world championships, April 23-25.

The team left Tuesday night, arriving in St. Louis Wednesday afternoon for practice matches, shopping and sightseeing.

The qualifying rounds ran Thursday and Friday and by the end, FRC Team 781 was 28th in the Hopper Division. After being sidelined during Alliance selection Saturday morning, the Kinetic Knights sat back and enjoyed the rest of the competition, as Alliance teams claimed their divisions and advanced to the finals on Eistein Field.

The team arrived back in Kincardine Sunday afternoon.
