conspiracy (noun) – A group of ravens.
The following groups conspire to make the RoboRavens successful. As a team, we take great pride in ensuring that the students are responsible for every aspect of team operations.
The heart of the conspiracy are students from Grade 9 through Grade 12. The students are responsible for design, fabrication, assembly, programming and marketing.
Our veteran students also take an active role in teaching rookie members on every aspect of their FIRST experience including teaching them safety procedures, proper use of tools, design techniques, CAD, programming and wiring among many other skills.
Ross Morrison, a shop teacher at Longfields-Davidson Heights Secondary School volunteers his time to help teach our students the necessary skills to work through the season, and runs a courses through the team that gives students 2 high school credits for their participation.
Many of our own graduates, along with FRC alumni from other teams return regularly to assist the team, bringing with them the knowledge and experience they gained during their tenure in the program. These include:
Nick Dufresne, Team 4783, Build
Sayf Eid, Team 4783, Programming
Tanner Krauter, Team 4946, Business
Leenesh Kumar, Team 2056/6378, Business
Michael Churchill, Team 4783, Build
Zachary Kayed, Team 4783, Build
Alyssa Gran, Team 4069, Business

Our well of knowledge. A group of dedicated industry professionals who work alongside the teachers and alumni to guide the students. These volunteers donate countless hours to help these students. Our mentors include:

The RoboRavens would be unable to compete each season without the support of our sponsors. The corporate sponsors and educational institutions that assist us every year make this program possible.
