Toronto Catholic District School Board

Vanier Robotics Team 2015


The TCDSB Robotics Compettion has been a tradition for many years now, and is held at Francis Libermann Catholic School each spring. This year, the team from Jean Vanier, headed by Mr Jorge, science department head, entered and competed for the first time.
The competition was held at Francis Libermann on Saturday, March 28 and we competed in 7 games and ended up 5th. Despite a number of mechanical issues both before and during competition, the team was able to work together to have a robot which finished the Harvest and was able to leave the arena under its own power!
The theme this year was "Harvest Time", and everyone is here to lend a hand - ours happened to be a robotic one!
Krishant Subramaniam, Liam Kelly, Gabrielle Abrasaldo, Parami Wijesundara, James Polvorosa, Joshua Judalco, Jimmy Chen, Duc Luu and Matthew Waterson worked for months on our robot (nicknamed Basketcase/Jorgie/YOLO) and produced a well-rounded ABS pipe harvesting machine.  Congratulations go out to all the students involved and JV Robotics 2016 promises to be a good one!
Here are a few more pictures of the event.
