Raven Robotics Awarded Awesome Foundation Grant

Raven Robotics Awesome Foundation Grant
 
Raven Robotics receives the Awesome Foundation Newmarket Grant of $1,000, congratulations!  Four years ago, Raven Robotics was launched to encourage students to join a competitive atmosphere while learning more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Currently, twelve committed and dedicated students at Sir William Mulock Secondary School spend an average of 2 hours a night 5 nights a week after class building robots for competitions, holding design meetings, holding scouting meeting, traveling to meet other teams and attending competitions.
 
With this Awesome Foundation Grant, the Raven Robotics team is able to afford material costs for the robots and trying to expand their team by adding a new robot so that more students can have the opportunity to learn in this fun environment. If they win a tournament in the upcoming season, Raven Robotics will have the opportunity to represent Newmarket and even Canada at the VEX Robotics World Championship held in Anaheim, California. They are currently the only team in all of the York region district school board competing in robotics competitions.
