Castlebrooke's VEX Robotics Team moves forward after hosting tournament on Saturday

On Saturday, Castlebrooke's VEX robotics team, Team 356, hosted our third annual qualifying tournament. Nearly 50 teams from around the GTA battled hard all day, including 2 robots entered by our very own school team. Both our robots made it to the playoffs, with one team making it all the way to the finals and winning. This win earns our robot team a spot at the Provincial Championships in the spring - a HUGE accomplishment!! The team is grateful to all the staff and students who volunteered their time over the weekend to make this tournament such huge success. If you see any of the robotics students in the school, please be sure to congratulate them on a job well done.
