​Robotics Victory: Second Place in Canada!


By Ms. C. Annetta

I wanted to share some good news regarding the accomplishments of the Breobics students this year.  The students persevered above being completely new to Robotics and the COVID restrictions this year. We competed in Provincials and FIRST Robotics invited our team to participate in the Canada Cup, which included teams from around the world such as Germany, Romania, the US, and Canada. The Canada Cup ceremony was yesterday and our team won 2nd place for the very prestigious Think Award!

Students excelled on the coding side. Our build limited us in what we could automate. This summer we plan to build a mecanum base and implement the code we wrote but had to revert. The kids learned how to automate the robot using PID controls to overcome unexpected events yet still maintain the drive path as well as maintaining shooting velocity/accuracy despite build inaccuracies and voltage decline. Judges were very impressed with the sophisticated level of the code given the limited team experience. They were also impressed with their outreach efforts, mainly where the kids facilitated coding workshops and a Robotics challenge during our 2 virtual STEAM day events this year on May 27 & 28th to several hundred gr 6 & 7 elementary students.
