Good Luck Ctrl-Z
Ctrl-Z is a co-ed FIRST LEGO League (FLL) robotics team from Bayview Glen School in Toronto, Canada consisting of seven energetic students from grades 6 to grade 10. They love sharing their passion and knowledge about the research project and the robot with other teams and with the general public.
Last season, Ctrl-Z won Champions Award – 1st Place at the FIRSTChampionships held in St. Louis in April 2017. In December, Ctrl-Z competed at the 12-team FLL regional qualifying tournament in Toronto. Ctrl-Z was selected as one of the two teams at the competition to advance to the Ontario East Provincial Championships in January 2018 at UOIT. CTRL-Z will represent Ontario and Canada at the 78-team FLL North American Open Championship to be held in California on May 18 -20, 2018.
