Robotics teams from Rick Hansen Secondary School are back from the world championship St. Louis, Missouri. Rick Hansen was represented by two robotics teams, who fought back hard and strong, and performed with 400  teams across the world.

FIRST Team 1241 THEORY6 had a tough qualification schedule which put them in at 5 wins and 5 losses at the end of regulation matches. Team 1241 managed to push the quarter final matches to 3 games losing in the end to some unfortunate penalty calls.
