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.
All skill levels are welcomed and needed. No prior experience needed to join!
