Mindfulness – Sportsmanship – Positive Inclusion – Relationship Building: That’s the secret behind the science and success of the MaxTech 4343 Robotics Crew.
This July, two students and a parent-mentor representing St. Maximilian Kolbe’s Robotics Crew, 4343, visited the York Catholic District School Board’s Catholic Education Centre in Aurora to present a plaque of appreciation to Trustee Elizabeth Crowe, and Associate Director of Education, Nancy DiNardo, in recognition of the Board’s ongoing support and encouragement.
The presentation capped off another outstanding year of innovation, competition, team and individual development, as well as community outreach for all “4343 MaxTech” ambassadors. Congratulations to the students, staff, parent-mentors and volunteers for their dedication.
At St. Maximilian Kolbe CHS in Aurora, the First Robotics Club 4343 MAXTECH crew participates annually in the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition. The team is one of 7,000+ teams worldwide, and among many York Catholic teams that compete for a place in the FIRST Championship held in Detroit, MI by qualifying locally at district competitions.
The robotics competitions are not just about building robots – it’s about developing life skills. Team members learn about building professional relationships, written and oral communications, teamwork, leadership, organization, project and time management, networking, budgeting, community service, and fundraising.
