Saints Bot is excited to announce that we will be hosting our first ever Windsor-Essex wide Saints-Bot-a-thon event, starting on Saturday, June 11th, 2022 and ending on Sunday, June 12th, 2022! Saints Bot held this event before in December of 2020 for Saints Bot team members, and because it was such a huge hit within our team, we decided to open it up to the rest of the Windsor-Essex community!
But what exactly is the Saints-Bot-a-thon? The Saints-Bot-a-thon is a 24-hour “hackathon”-style challenge event, where teams of students will be tasked with coming up with and presenting a creative solution to a given FRC-themed problem that has been brainstormed by our exceptional Saints Bot Mentors! This problem will include an aspect of each of the divisions of an FRC team: mechanical, electrical, programming, business, scouting, safety, and media. Through this challenge, students will have an opportunity to apply skills learned throughout their FRC experience (although previous FRC experience is NOT required), as well as bond and connect with other team members more than just seeing a face or an icon on a screen! In addition to this main challenge, there will be presentations from experienced mentors/keynote speakers, fun activities to break up work periods, and prizes to be won overall!
The Saints-Bot-a-thon Registration Form is due on Friday, June 3rd, 2022. After this date, registration will close and we will be releasing a full schedule and teams list for both students and mentors participating in the event.
