Robotics Team

While the primary focus of the club is building a robot, many different skills and talents are valued as the club is about much more than just robotics! They especially look out for creative and resourceful minds to join their ranks and to flex their skills by collaborating on coming up with a central theme, then expressing that theme through building and decorating a kiosk, a short video, and a website.  

New members would join the team in designing, building, and testing the robot, kiosk, video, and website, while learning and developing new and valuable skills. The club shows off all their efforts annually at the Canadian Robotics Competition where teams from different schools spanning the country gather and celebrate the engineering spirit!
