FTC robotics is a competition of team challenge. Each year different game designs and criteria are released. Last year it was Relic Recovery, and this year it is Rover Ruckus. Each game requires strategic planning – not only in the gameplay aspect but also in the design aspect.
Business input is also required to finance for team budgets. Lastly, each team member’s talent is also factored into the success of the robot. All for one and one for all, we work as a team and we win as a team. This is FTC team Roboknights 10639 and Argonauts 12624.

Upperclass students at BCSM earn service hours while sharing their classroom expertise with their younger peers. Much like their university counterparts, TAs attend monthly training, work closely with classroom teachers, and act as mentors and guides to the students in their assigned class. TA positions are posted each semester and filled by application and availability. It is highly recommended that students who intend to apply for Hayden Mentorship positions get experience as TAs.
