Churchill Robotics Club qualifies for Worlds in Houston, Texas

The Churchill Robotics Club won the regional title this past weekend in Calgary at the Canadian Rockies Regional.

With the win in the FIRST Robotics Canada competition, students at Winston Churchill High School have qualified for the world competition in Houston, Texas, April 17-20.

“We competed in field of 38 and only the winning alliance, three teams, qualified for Worlds,” said Nevin Morrison, a teacher at Winston Churchill who helps oversee the club. “The other two teams were from Idaho and Hawaii.”

The Churchill club is now looking for financial assistance in order to make the Texas trip a reality.

“We are looking for funding to cover the $5,000 U.S. entry fee and transportation,” said Morrison.

Those interested in supporting the team with the trip to the world championships can visit the Cerberus Robotics Club website and click on Sponsors, then Sponsorship Package.
