Bayview Glen's robotics teams win big at Provincials
Two of Bayview Glen's robotics teams had outstanding results at the FIRST LEGO League (FLL) East Provincial Championships this past weekend at UOIT/Durham College campus in Oshawa. Ctrl Z won top prize winning the Champions Award first place and will now move on to the FIRST Championships in St. Louis. Team RED won the core value award for inspiration for their performance. Both teams were two of seven to be invited to the prestigious Ontario Global Innovation Celebration to be held next month in Markham. There is a research component to the robotics programme. Along with building and operating robots, students are challenged to create an innovative solution to a problem. This year's theme is Animal Allies - making our interactions with animals better. Ctrl-Z created a pet finder device while Team RED focussed on technology that would help save animals from barn fires. Read more about the tournament in the Durham College news.
