FLL, also known as First Lego League, is a Lego-based robotics tournament for those ages 9-14. Students create a robot, develop a research project, demonstrate the core values of First, and gain knowledge of STEM fields.
The FRC Kickoff on January 9, 2016, where the FRC game for 2016, Stronghold, was announced, and build season began, as well as the FRC Quickbuild where team Arctos began work on our robot.
The FRC build season, during which team Arctos worked tirelessly every day for several weeks, often staying until late hours, in order to complete Bloor Collegiate's first ever FRC robot to compete in Stronghold at the Windsor regionals.
In 2016, Team Arctos 6135 participated in the FRC Windsor-Essex Great Lakes Regional. This competition marked the beginning of our teamís involvement with FIRST Robotics. Throughout the event, we gained important experience that has helped us grow together as a small community.
