More About Our Team

Founded in 2012 as the first robotics team in Sudbury, Lo-Ellen Robotics consists of two dozen students who endeavour to spread STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) throughout the community. Since its inception, the group has competed in numerous FIRST Robotics Competitions(FRC) winning awards and qualifying for World Competitions 4 times in 5 years.

Throughout the year, the team promotes STEM culture at local events such as Science North Canada Day, Engineering Week, FLL Regional events, Go Eng Girl, and WISE Engineering Olympics. Lo-Ellen Robotics has started and mentored several other Sudbury FRC and FLL teams. Lo-Ellen Robotics believes in inspiring young people to be tomorrow's science and technology leaders. Team alumnus have received scholarships, internships, and academic opportunities made possible by the robotics community.

Our Robots


A robot that can climb high or low to get through every obstacle presented at the Stronghold competition. It's award winning pivoting arm can push, lift and angle the robot through a defense. The arm also has a conveyor belt intake mechanism to enable the bot to shoot boulders into the castle for extra points.
