Team Canada in Dubai
TEAM CANADA is back from Dubai, UAE after participating in FIRST Global robotics competition. Their final rank was 80 / 189 teams who competed. This is Canada's highest ranking to date. We are very proud of the teamwork and passion that these youth put towards their chance to compete.
We would like to thank all the sponsors and donors who have provided funding to send the three youngest non-competing youth along with the four competitors. Three others from the team have elected not to go. In addition to the team, we were able to send 1 additional mentor and 3 family members as chaperones. The team is made up of members of an older team, Gearheads and a new team I'myanistsitapikoan - Many People in One.
