Hoyas Robotics team to host tourney next year with funding from HMATA
The Huntsville Municipal Accommodation Tax Association (HMATA) is helping to bring a robotics competition to town.
The Hoya Robotics team at Huntsville High School has received $9,000 in seed money to conduct a Robotics competition early next year. According to officials, it will bring up to 20 student robotics teams from throughout the province to Huntsville.
The Hoyas had previously won the provincial championship. The season begins on January 6, and the teams will have eight weeks to design and build a competing robot.
Team founder Ian McTavish says they are also attempting to establish a robotics team at Georgian College's Bracebridge Campus. "The goal is to build a robotics corridor all the way from north of Toronto to North Bay and beyond.”
