Robotics Team


Wind Chill 2450 is the robotics team at Cretin-Derham Hall. Wind Chill originally began as “Raider Bots” in 2008 and rebranded to Wind Chill in 2020 to stand out at competitions. Cretin-Derham Hall is a proud member of the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics program. Robotics is more than building robots. What we discover when facing a challenge like building a robot is how to bring all kinds of learners, abilities, and interests together so that the outcome is the best for everyone involved.
