    HULTGREN asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Mr. HULTGREN. Mr. Speaker, on December 8, 2012, ``Got Robot?'', FTC Team No. 5037, a group of high school students from Elgin, Illinois, won an award at the FIRST Tech Challenge Illinois State Tournament. Now ``Got Robot?'' will represent Illinois in the FIRST World Championships in St. Louis, Missouri, this upcoming April.



    Out of 2,500 participating teams around the world, ``Got Robot?'' is one of only 128 to qualify for the World Championships.

    At a time when we need to do everything possible to promote science education and basic scientific research, I'm so thrilled to be able to say that I've met this team, seen the robot, and it's fantastic. We are so proud of these students and we wish their team the best of luck.

    Go, ``Got Robot?''.
