Member Stories

Silver Owl Robotics gave me the opportunity to learn the foundations of coding and engineering, as well as develop my teamwork and problem solving skills. These skills have been instrumental in getting accepted into my dream university Waterloo and surviving the demanding computer science program.

During COVID, I had a hard time finding well structured and useful extra curriculars. Silver Owl Robotics changed the game for me. I was placed in a focused environment with like minded peers, all focused on making the best robot possible. I had a great time there, became Provincial champions with my team 3150A, and learned many skills. Silver Owl was instrumental to fleshing out my university applications with awards, and enabled me to enter the program of my choice.

As someone who has loved robotics and building for most of my life, I had a difficult time finding the right club to join. Every club I joined were poorly ran, did not have a good environment, and I was forcefully put on a team with bad teamates. Frustrated at everything, I left those clubs and joined Silver Owl Robotics. This club prioritized quality and winning over making money, and fast forward a year from now, my team won Vex Provincials and we became the best in Ontario. Silver Owl Robotics has a great environment and the founders do everything they can to ensure its members succeed.

Silver Owl Robotics was a great entry point for me into the fields of robotics and engineering. As someone who was fascinated by technology, I was introduced to the club by my friend. Although I had no prior robotics experience, with the help of great coaches and a support system, I was able to learn Vex Robotics quickly and become really good at it. I was put on 3150A, an extremely dedicated team with hard-working and intelligent members all working collectively to win Worlds. I have learned more about engineering, teamwork, and coding in Silver Owl Robotics than at school or in any other class. Highly Recommend!

Silver Owl VRC is amazing. At first, I was worried about joining as a beginner with almost zero experience, but upon joining, I was quickly taught and introduced to the amazing environment of people. I have learned a ton about the vex program and what it means to truly be an engineer. Additionally, the entry fee in relation to other clubs is fantastic, keeping in mind how much better this club is overall. I would highly recommend this club for anyone that may wish to pursue a career in engineering as well as those willing to try something new!

What We Do

VRC

VRC (VEX Robotics Competition) brings STEM skills to life!

VRC is for students from grades 6 to 12. Students join a team, build and program robots, and compete with teams all across Canada and the world. Robots compete in a game field in a 2v2 match, with the goal to outscore their opponents with their alliance partner. There are many tournaments throughout the year to participate in, eventually culminating in the Vex Worlds, where the best teams in the world compete.

More than 11,500 teams around the world compete in VRC. VRC is a fantastic way to introduce yourself to STEM, engineering, and computer science.

How It Works

New members who join fall into two types:

 

Experienced (Has done VEX Robotics for at least one season)

If you’re already experienced and decide to join, you’ll probably start off on a high-performing, experienced team. You should still attend part of our training program to make sure you have the proper foundation, as our lessons include insights and secrets that very few teams actually know.

Beginner (Has never participated in Vex Robotics or done robotics in their life)

If you’re an absolute beginner and feel VEX Robotics might be too challenging or that you don’t have any experience, do NOT worry! Our club is great at accommodating beginners through our extensive training program and high-quality coaching. After going through our training, you’ll probably start off on a learning team so you and your teammates can learn the foundation of Vex Robotics together before you move to advanced.

We are pretty lenient on which team you would like to be on, and listen to your opinion carefully when putting you on a team.

Our Unique Methodology

At Silver Owl Robotics, we have one goal… Do robotics at the Highest Level. We want every member in our club to win tournament after tournament, award after award, and make it to the highest stage of Vex Robotics… Worlds. 

Our 3 pillars to success are:

  • An Intense Training Program
    • Organized lesson system that brings even complete beginners up to date with the foundation of build, design, and code.
    • Taught by world-class coaches who’ve been Provincial Champions for 2 years in a row. We know ins and outs and secrets to winning in VEX robotics
    • Extensive coaching to teams for robot design, programming, and game competition strategy
  • Relentless Culture of Dedication
    • To become the best in any field requires an insane amount of dedication. We want members who are obsessive and are intent on achieving their full potential.
    • We push our members to work as hard as possible and hold them accountable.
    • We are open everyday. Members can drop in at any time that we are open, and work for as long as they want.
    • Our coaches are extremely dedicated, are present for all opening hours, and are there to help you succeed in robotics.
  • Great Environment
    • Quality over quantity – We’d rather have less members and have a more organized club. We make sure every single team in our club has enough supplies for their robots, enough workspace, and is taken care of.
    • We form our teams carefully. We make sure our members are placed on teams where they can work the best. We also make sure each team has a clear structure, has proper meetings, tracks their progress, and so on…
