It was successful showing for robotics students in the district at the FIRST Robotics Canada Pacific Regional in Victoria recently.
Six robotics teams from Surrey Schools competed in the tournament, held at the Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre March 4-7. Of those six teams, three received awards: L.A. Matheson Secondary's Mecha Mustangs won the Engineering Inspiration Award, North Surrey Secondary's Hephaestus won the Industrial Design Award and Queen Elizabeth Secondary's Royal Robotics won the Highest Rookie Seed Award.
L.A. Matheson placed second overall, earning the team a seat at the world championships in Houston, Texas, while North Surrey received a wildcard nomination to worlds.
The other Surrey teams included System Reset from Clayton Heights Secondary, Techmates from Earl Marriott Secondary and Semiahmoo Robotics from Semiahmoo Secondary. The tournament saw 42 teams from around the world put their robots through technical skills challenges to demonstrate accuracy, versatility and balance.
Each robot was programmed to throw yellow balls through a hoop, as well as lift and balance from a pull-up bar as part of the competition.
In a separate competition, for the third straight year, Enver Creek Secondary qualified for the VEX Robotics World Championship in Louisville, Ky., following an impressive performance at the VEX B.C. Mainland Regional Championships in late February. Enver Creek is home to two of the nine B.C. teams that advanced to the world championship.
Unfortunately, both the VEX Robotics World Championship and the 2020 FIRST Championship in Houston have been cancelled due to health concerns around the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
