Mission & Vision
Our mission is to build the future.
The kids of today will determine the future. That is why it is essential that they have the skills required. Our goal is to empower kids such that they can forge that future. Here they learn a lot more than just robotics. It builds their grit, empowers them as leaders, converts them into critical thinkers, and enables them to easily communicate with peers. That is why there are no restrictions on who can be part of the team, regardless of age, school, gender, or level of knowledge. We welcome everyone to compete and learn. Our virtual classes take this to another level since students can join anywhere from the world and still receive an amazing experience.
Our goal is to build a better tomorrow. Will you join us?
The Origin of our Name
We have all the curiosity to learn everything there is to know about our observable universe, which is why we were inspired to go with the name Relatively Quantum. Our name refers to two key theories about the universe: quantum mechanics, pioneered by physicist Max Planck, and the famous theory of relativity by the one and only Albert Einstein. These two theories have covered the polar opposites of our physical world, branching out from the smallest atoms and molecules you can think of all the way to the largest neutron stars that we curiously gaze at in the night. After learning of these two theories and how they intertwine with each other to create the fabric of our world, we knew we had to incorporate it as a billboard of our passion and love for learning. Thus the FTC robotics team, Relatively Quantum was born!
How We Started
Our team’s coming together is a story of shared passions, effort, and chance. It all started at Chinguacousy Secondary School. Our captain, Armaan, was looking into joining the FIRST Robotics Competition at his school, as he was already a member of VEX and loved robotics. He had approached his principal about starting an FRC team, but with the recent cuts to education in Ontario, the school could not afford it. That was a huge setback, but it wasn’t going to stop him from reaching his goals.
We needed to find an affordable alternative that would still be valuable and a learning experience. Then we found out about the FIRST Tech Challenge - it was exactly what we needed! Eventually, Chinguacousy got the funding to start an FRC team, but Armaan reached out to a few friends and decided that he would create a community FTC team with a small group of people with a passion and drive for robotics. After Armaan's school friends joined, his younger sister, Muskaan, also wanted to join. With our small team growing, we decided to open out team up to all young innovators with our summer business to create the dream team that is Relatively Quantum!
