     Cougars Robotics, team 4932, is a team of students located at Cardinal Carter Catholic Secondary School in Leamington Ontario. We will be competing for the fourth year in the FIRST Robotics Competition. This year we will be attending the Windsor-Essex Greats Lakes district event and the North Bay event. 

     FRC is the highest level of robotics competition offered by FIRST. High-school students team up with the world’s best technology companies to build the most impressive robots you’ve ever seen. Built from scratch in only 6 weeks, these 54 inch tall, 120 pound robots compete in high intensity robo-sports. With bragging rights at stake for schools and the companies that support them, robotics takes on a pro-sports experience. Watch the best of the best in robotics come out to play. “The varsity sport for the mind,” FRC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources, and time limits, teams of approximately 25 students are challenged to raise funds, design a team “brand,” hone teamwork skills, and build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.
