Team 781, the Kinetic Knights Robotics of Kincardine are getting ready to head off to the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science & Technology) world robotics championships that are held in St. Louis, Missouri.  

Society of Energy Professionals presents $5,000

This will be the fifth year in a row that the Team is taking part in the event.

Team 781 was started in 2001-2012 with the help of Bruce Power and the Power Workers' Union Training Inc.  This year, both organizations have again given the group a financial boost to help with their upcoming trip to the competitions.

The Team will be competing for the Chairman's Award again this year after having won it two years in a row.  This year's entry is a robot that picks up different shapes such as round garbage pails and square totes.
