Longmont robotics teams dominate at world tournament

Niwot High School senior Asher Behmer’s involvement in Up-A-Creek Robotics for the past four years finally came to a head on April 23 during an international youth robotics competition in Houston, Texas.

Although Behmer competed in the FIRST Championship with Up-A-Creek Robotics as a freshman, he was disappointed when COVID-19 caused the annual robotics tournament to be canceled. Nevertheless, during this time, Behmer shifted his attention from winning competitions to honing in on his leadership and robotics skills, while also acting as Up-A-Creek Robotics’ FRC team’s head of scouting, he said.
