We are a private competitive team composed of two grade 11 students. We've competed in Vex Robotics Competitions for 5 years now, and have qualified for the world championship 3 consecutive times. This season, we placed 5th in the world for skills standings and won 12 total awards (as of May 3, 2021). We started team 210Y and Western Mechatronics when our new school didn't offer Vex Robotics.
