The idea to create our robotics team FIRST follows a conference on Robotics given by M. François Michaud, Chair of the Canada mobile robotics and autonomous intelligent systems research and member of the Board of Directors of FIRST Quebec. His passion for robotics and the FIRST project so inspired us that we wanted to embark on the adventure. The team is composed of 18 students from the 2nd to the 5th secondary and 9 from the middle school and community mentors.

The Cárnicas team has been founded in September 2013 by three passionate Robotics teachers wishing to convey their interest in science and technology to their students. Our team is hosted in high school the hive of Magog in Quebec, in the Canada. Our pupils study all at La Ruche in different programs. We will participate, in March 2014, to our first tournament FIRST in Montreal.


Meet the team 2016-2017!
