WHO ARE WE
We are the Atom Smashers Robotics Team from Esquimalt High School, Greater Victoria School District #61. Our team strives to learn, develop skills, and explore topics related to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Our goals are to engineer, design, build, program and operate a successful FIRST robot that meets the challenge of the problem set out for us. Success is measured in each member of the team gaining the ability to problem solve individually and as a unit in addition to being able to explain their learning path through this adventure.
Our team started with the opportunity to compete in the 2018 FIRST Robotics Canadian Pacific Regional held at the Save On Memorial Centre in Victoria British Columbia. We won the Rookie All-Star Award in 2018 for our build, perseverance and all around FIRST ideals that we have demonstrated as a team. Through that success we were given the opportunity to compete at the 2018 Houston World Championships. Our team has continued to compete at the regional competition in Victoria and take away a lot of knowledge and important experience. We competed for the third time in 2020 and won silver at the regional championships. This season we are running both an FRC team as well as starting an FTC team.
