Welcome to the official website for St. Mary Catholic Secondary School’s FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics team. The FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) is an annual challenge that combines the excitement of sport with science and technology. Thousands of high school teams from across Canada and around the world have a blast building robots from the ground up to compete in varsity-sport-like games at Regional competitions and the FIRST World Championships. Through working alongside adult professionals who have backgrounds in technology and engineering, MakeShift student team members have a fantastic opportunity to test-drive a career while completing real-world engineering challenges.
