Our Story

Bell High School Robotics is a relatively new club started by passionate grade 9s with high hopes and determination to succeed in robotics competitions. The team participates in a lot of local competitions and is hoping to compete against other schools at Provincial or even at the National level. The team hopes to continue building the club and integrating future students at Bell High School to join the team, by doing so the students will be able to learn from hands-on experience, expand their knowledge of science and technology, and of course have fun!

What makes us stand out?

The Bell High School Robotics club is different in that it is student run with teachers just supervising. The students are the ones that make all of the financial decisions as Bell High School is a public school, and the team does not receive any funding from the school.

The students on the team are all passionate about STEM fields and taking the initiative to go beyond what they learn in the classroom. Most importantly, the team is comprised of students from all kinds of ethnical backgrounds which is crucial to the social importance of STEM education.

Mission and Aims

Bruins Robotics has several aims: to foster interest in robotics through competition, to cultivate a relationship with the surrounding Ottawa community, and much closer to home, to create a core community at Bell High School via the “Team First, Robotics Second” philosophy, which prioritizes team bonding and growth along with engineering accomplishment.

Bell High School Robotics ultimate goals are to advance in robotics through competition across the globe, and most importantly, to spread our knowledge and passion to future generations of students at Bell High School and the surrounding Ottawa community
