Why we do what we do

“Throughout my years in elementary school, I found myself constantly fascinated with technology. Sadly, I was never provided with the resources to explore this fascination. I found out about FRC from two schoolmates of mine, who were members of “Quickstrike Niagara”. I joined team 6978, and needless to say, it was the best decision I’ve made regarding extracurriculars. I was encouraged to explore past my comfort zone, and as a result, I learned many new and memorable things. My mentors were all extremely kind, lighthearted and supportive. With FRC, even the tightest competitions are friendly ones. It’s opened me up to many opportunities–especially with employers. As a proud member of team 6978, and FRC in general, I can say with confidence that it was the perfect decision, and one I’ll definitely be making again for the 2020 season.”

“Niagara Robotics is filling a void that local elementary and high schools have in technical training. We are helping students across the Region learn skills they would otherwise never obtain. This is giving a future to both the individual and the community to have an educated and skilled workforce."
