The Science Garage is host to its very own FIRST Tech Challenge robotics team. Team TWOSE is comprised of 8 Grade 7-12 students from the Edmonton area whose schools don’t offer an opportunity to take part on a robotics team. These teens have been meeting on a weekly basis since mid-September, diligently engineering, prototyping, programming and planning for their robot’s success at this year’s championship event. A team of adult coaches and mentors provide expertise and guidance in a safe environment. The team, as well as all FIRST Robotics teams, practice Gracious Professionalism at all times.
