Air Cadets & Robotics!

Congratulations to Aila Simpson, formerly of 809 Squadron (she moved with her family to BC two years ago) – best of luck at World’s next weekend!

Former 809 Cadet to World’s Robotics!

“Fermion” is a remote-controlled robot designed, built, programmed and maintained by a group of Victoria high school students.

“A lot of people think it’s very cool,” said team member Aila Simpson.

The students from Mount Douglas Secondary School, Victoria High and the Pacific School of Innovation and Inquiry are part of a local robotics team called FIX-IT 3491.

The team is fine tuning their robot for the FIRST Global Championships in Houston, Texas on April 19 to 22.
