MMRambotics is a team of students from M.M. Robinson High School in Burlington, Ontario. We are continuing to compete in the the FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) after six years of involvement. Our teachers and mentors collaborate with the team each year to build large scale robots for the events.
Our 2012-2013 team brings over students and mentors mentors to the team. Students are divided into six sub-teams: Website and Media, Mechanical, Electrical, Programming, Robot Design, Business and Outreach.
Senior students train and educate new students alongside our mentors each year before the season begins. We then enter our six week build period in January. Build season is our intensive robot building time – students will learn how to be creative and innovating while co-operating with each other.
In the past, MMRambotics has competed at the University of Waterloo regional and the Toronto regional at the Hershey Center. For our 2012-2013 season we will be competing at Waterloo and in Lewiston, Maine.
M.M. Robinson High School
2013 brought some great additions to our team. We are becoming further coupled with the Halton District School Board and with M.M. Robinson High School. The manufacturing and computer engineering programs are both helping our program by assigning students with tasks that are FIRST or MMRambotics related. This gains awareness of our program and gives these students more challenging, interesting tasks.
Additionally this year, MMRambotics is now running as both a six period credit and night school course, administered through Gary Allen.
Using our additional partnership with HDSB, we are reaching out and collaborating with other Halton District teams. These partnerships are crucial to our future and we look forward to more successful seasons.
