Manitoulin Secondary School team earns prestigious judge’s award

BARRIE – The Manitoulin Secondary School (MSS) and Wikwemikong High School (WHS) FIRST Robotics teams both competed at the Georgian College competition in Barrie earlier this month, with the WHS team First Nations STEM 5672 making it as far as the quarter finals and the MSS Manitoulin Metal 6865 team earning a prestigious judge’s award at the event.

“The kids dug deep; they had a few technical issues they were working through as we were going through the competition, but we were only able to make it that far with all the hard work of the students,” said First Nations STEM mentor Adrian Rampersad after the end of the competition.

FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics is an event that has steadily gained popularity during the past decade. It offers young students the opportunity to design, build, test and operate robots for various competitions. Team 5672 at WHS was the first FIRST team to arrive on Manitoulin Island and that team helped mentor and form the MSS team a few years later.
