Brampton’s young people are going places. Local robotics team Relatively Quantum 16397 has qualified for the First Tech Challenge in Houston, Texas later in April 2022. The team is one of only two teams that qualified in Ontario. The team has named their robot Humpty Dumpty.
The team was formed just prior to the start of the pandemic and consists of 10 students from 4 local schools, with the youngest team member only 11 years old. They meet as team once a week in a converted garage that now doubles as a build and competition pit.
Councillor Vicente and Councillor Santos met with the team members and parents at City Hall to wish them the best of luck in Houston.
