As we all know, 2020 was unexpectedly under unusual circumstances. To this day, the world is handling the Covid-19 pandemic, which has brought drastic changes to society. Although many countries have announced the purchase of vaccine doses, we would advise continuing the practice of regular hand-washing, sanitization and wearing a mask in public areas. We also hope you find inspiration and learn from our experiences with the pandemic in this blog!
Initially, at the beginning of 2020, we were enlisted to attend a regional competition in Hawaii. We also qualified for the Houston, Texas World Championships. Unfortunately, due to travel limitations, we cancelled our plans. Our province had transitioned to online learning, meaning we did not have access to a working facility. With a functioning robot yet no purpose, our team encountered an unmotivated break.
This setback continued until October 2020, when we adjusted to a new learning style and schedule. In the team's best interest, we decided to have a more active online presence on our social media platforms in this new virtual normality, which allowed us to host an online coding workshop using Vex VR in partnership with our local library. We were glad to continue making connections with our community!
It is now 2021, and our goals are to expand our side projects on the online platform. Join us in our journey to maintain learning and sustainability in our team, as we will be updating our progress!
