Who is Team 781?

This workshop is being held at the home of the Team 781 Kinetic Knights. The Kinetic Knights are a FIRST Robotics team for students aged 15 - 19, based in Kincardine. They compete in a different program called FIRST Robotics Challenge using larger robots. Over the years many of the members got their start by being on the FIRST Lego League team when they were younger. The team has been volunteering and supporting teams as well as organizing and running a tournament. They applied for and received a grant to help start more FIRST Lego League teams and want to work with others to share their love of robots.
