Team 4939, AllSpark9, was founded in 2013 at Central Peel Secondary School. Starting as a small group of students interested in STEM education, it was led by Mr. Anthony Griffith and Mr. Kevin Ali, Science teachers at Central Peel. Today, we have more than 100 students, of which approximately 60% are female. All of the students attend Central Peel Secondary School, which is located in Brampton. Students on the team regularly spend days after school and weekends working on our initiatives and building our robot, both at Central Peel and Rick Hansen Secondary School in Mississauga. Our team thrives on student-led and mentor-assisted practices. By splitting the team into small sub-teams like CAD (Computer Assisted Design), Programming, Electrical, Pneumatics, and Business, this allows for an increase of success across the board, achieved by the team.
