FIRST Robotics (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) was founded in 1992 with the purpose of allowing the youth to become inspired to lead and innovate by exposing them to the world of science, technology, and engineering.
2019: Destination: Deep Space
Founded in 2018, we are a new FIRST Robotics team from Alexander Mackenzie High School. During our rookie year in 2019, our team of around a dozen students and mentors competed at Durham College and Ryerson University as part of the Ontario District.
At Ryerson, our team won both the Rookie All Star Award and Rookie Inspiration Award at Ryerson University, ending our first year of competition on a high note.
Since then, our team has continued to grow, giving more students from all walks of life the chance to develop their skills in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
2020: Infinite Recharge
During our 2020 season, we competed at Humber College as a sophomore team. Though the results we were hoping for were not attained, we held our spirits high and worked around the clock for our second regional event.
Unfortunately, after much dedication and late nights at school, the Ryerson competition was canceled due to COVID-19. We are disappointed about this outcome to say the least. Nonetheless, we are working hard to bring our team together again and stronger than ever to compete in the next year's First Robotics Competitions.
