We were a private competitive team composed of two high school students. We competed in Vex Robotics Competitions for 6 years, and have qualified for the world championship 3 consecutive times. Last season, we placed 3rd in the world for skills standings out of 22,000 teams worldwide. We started team 210Y and Western Mechatronics when our new school didn't offer Vex Robotics.
Jonathan (right) and Ian (left) have been doing robotics together since the seventh grade. Jonathan is the lead programmer and Ian is the lead builder and driver. Together, they design, build, program the robot (center) and bring it to tournaments across North America to compete. Both Ian and Jonathan graduated high school in 2022, meaning 210Y is now retired.
Awards are given out at every tournament for the team that deserves recognition for their designs. There are awards for design, teamwork, sportsmanship.

The ranks of robots are determined by their Skills Scores. A Skills Score is the number of points a robot can score in one minute. Skills score is also based on time: the shorter the run, the better the score. 210Y has a skills score of 252 points with a 17second stop time. Placing them 3rd in the World out of 22,000+ teams.
210Y has released a handful of Robot Reveal Youtube videos which have more than 50 thousand combined hits. 210Y has a large social media presence with over 500 followers. 210Y has also hosted a handful of live stream events in the robotics community.
