How Our Team Started
Our team’s coming together is a story of shared passions, effort, and chance. It all started at Chinguacousy Secondary School (CSS) where our captain, Armaan was looking into joining the First Robotics Competition at his school, as he was already a member of VEX and fell in love with robotics. He had approached his principal about starting a FRC team, but with the recent cuts to education in Ontario, it seemed that the school couldn’t afford it. That was a huge setback for him, 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 his school friends, Jasmeet and Bhuvesh joined, his younger sister, Muskaan wanted to join. With our small team growing, we decided to invite another friend of ours, Muaaz and his brother Ahmad to create the dream team that is Relatively Quantum.
