The sport chosen for the Canada FIRST competition for 2001 was Robobiathlon.   Many of the participants came into the competition knowing nothing about robots, but after dividing individuals into groups and attending many meetings, we were able to learn and become experts in our own fields.  Using the kit provided by Canada FIRST, we were able to create a robot that moves, fires and aims.
