April 25, 2013 - EnvironmentalLights.com, a leading source for high-quality, energy-efficient LED lighting, mentored and sponsored the FIRST Robotics team from Francis Parker High School in San Diego throughout the past five months of development. With the help of team sponsors and mentors, the W.A.R. Lords (We Are Robot Lords) team won the Inland Empire Regionals in San Bernardino, CA on March 30 and are on their way to the FIRST Championships in St. Louis, MO April 24 – 27, 2013.

“It was so great to see the W.A.R. Lords compete and see their robot in action,” said Greg Thorson, President of EnvironmentalLights.com. “They showed leadership and teamwork while working in their alliance with Team 1538 (The Holy Cows) and Team 968 (Robotics Alliance of West Covina) to win the Inland Empire Regionals. We are very excited for the championships this week!”

Ultimate Ascent is played between two Alliances of three teams each. Each Alliance competes by trying to score as many flying discs into their goals as possible during the two-minute and 15-second match. Discs scored in higher goals score Alliances more points. Matches end with robots attempting to climb up pyramids located near the middle of the field.
