Why should I join?
^ Read above! There are so many different areas of the team to get involved with. We have business, spirit, design, build, and programming sub-teams. You can be involved with one or more sub-teams. We also travel to cities like Waterloo, Windsor, and Toronto to compete with our robot with and against other FRC teams.
Don't forget, there are a TON of scholarships available to FRC students! University of Windsor, University of Waterloo, Ryerson University, University of Toronto, Western University, UOIT, and many more (in Ontario alone!)
Why should my company sponsor your team?
Sponsors are essential to any FIRST team. Without their contributions, we wouldn't have the neccessary funds or resouces to run our program.
Registration for FIRST Robotics teams can be very expensive. Not to mention all of the materials and tools we need to build our robot.
Our programs aims to inspire self-confidence, leadership, teamwork, and accountability in our team members. Our team also tries to encourage students to pursue careers in STEM related fields.
