McGill Robotics Team

Help The McGill Robotics Team purchase the necessary equipment to bring their robot designs to life and compete in Maryland, Utah and California this summer!

  • The funds will be spent on new materials and equipment to design and build unique robots, as well as subsidize the costs associated with sending students to various competitions
  • With your help, we can maintain a high level of excellence with our robots and community outreach initiatives
  • Help us continue to provide engineering students the opportunity to apply classroom learnings and represent McGill on a worldwide stage

The McGill Robotics Team has seen an explosion in growth over the past three years. What started as a single Robosub project has grown into an amazing display of engineering, creativity and teamwork. We're McGill's largest student robotics community (150 active members), seeking to teach and inspire students as we tackle new robotic challenges on land, water and in the air.

For the first time ever, we hope to compete with our newest project, a drone named Martlet-1, at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Student Unmanned Aerial Systems (AUVSI SUAS) Competition this summer in Maryland. We're also planning to attend summertime competitions in Utah and Califonia with our newest Mars rover, Calliope, and our most recent underwater vehicle, Bradbury- but we need your help to get there!

Join us in showing the world what our robots can do. With your support, we will finally be able to purchase the necessary equipment and materials to make our new designs a reality and build our drone, mars rover and autonomous underwater vehicle.

Our recent achievements would not have been possible without our supporters. Thank you for helping us as we strive to build robots and inspire student engineers!
