Argosy Lessons Learned
As a request from our generous sponsor Argosy Foundation, we reflected on our first FRC season, and created this "Lessons Learned" guide to help future rookie teams. Check it out!
FIRST® Robotics Competition
FRC Team 7267 - Lisgar Robotics Club is a proud member of FIRST Community since the FIRST Power Up Season of 2017~2018
IEEE Robotics Competition
Our club has been sending teams to complete in the local IEEE Competition every year, winning Bronze medal in the year of 2017.
Our club organizes summer outreach presentations, workshops and demonstrations to summer campers throughout the city the share the passion for STEM
FIRST® Lego League
Our FRC Team is planning Mentoring FLL teams from Middle Schools near by. As the runner up for FRC, FLL prepares team members for future FRC
School Spirit Projects
Our club presents cool robots and projects to the Stud Co. and other clubs during spirit weeks to support our Lisgar community
Arduino is a great way to introduce club members to robotics, we start every club year with a simple arduino pro
FRC Team 7267 - Mission Statement
FIRST Robotics Competition Team 7267, the Lisgar Robotics Club, represents downtown Ottawa’s Lisgar Collegiate Institute. Lisgar C.I. has always focused on encouraging and expanding education opportunities in the field of science and technology for students, and drive to expose interested students (not just at Lisgar) to STEM activities is at the core of our team mission.
As one of Ottawa’s highest performing schools, students at Lisgar receive a strong education the the theoretical aspects of the STEM fields. Unfortunately, our school’s location in a heritage building limits the ability to balance this strong theoretical education with the hands-on technical and shop component that is present at most other area schools. We strongly believe that Lisgar students should be given the opportunity to participate in hands-on STEM educational activities and the FIRST Robotics Competition, the largest Robotics Competition for high school students worldwide, provides the perfect opportunity to do this.
The Lisgar Robotics Club challenges students to learn and build technical, leadership, entrepreneurial, safety, communication, and outreach skills through real-world experiences. Students learn from each other, teachers, community mentors, and community supporters expanding their learning beyond the confines of the classroom in a fun and interactive way.
Lisgar Robotics Club, Team 7267 also believes in spreading FIRST’s mission beyond the team and school, planning and executing outreach activities for both other students and the wider community. Over the past two months in the summer, we connected with various summer camps throughout Ottawa, hosting 15 one-hour long presentations and demos to youth about FIRST Robotics Competition and FIRST Lego League, impacting over 300 youth.
As a second-year team, we are pleased to join with the RoboRavens (4783), Merge Robotics (2706), and the Aztecs (2994) to grow the FIRST community in the Ottawa region. In the upcoming 2019 FIRST Launch Season, we will be mentoring a rookie FIRST Robotics Competition from Colonel By Secondary School as well as a rookie FIRST Lego League team from York St. Public School.
