FRC Team 865 Warp 7 was founded at Western Technical Commercial School in Toronto, Ontario in 2002. Our team was one of the first teams in Canada to join FIRST Robotics and has been working for over a decade to inspire students and create the leaders of tomorrow. Our goal is to go above and beyond high school curriculum, to educate students to design and build robotic systems using industry standard materials and tools, and to give students the opportunity to work together in teams to problem-solve and innovate.
"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 25 students or more 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.
