Founder Myke Predko built his first robot in Grade 8 – a wall follower made from toy parts held together by glue and rubber bands. The skills and confidence gained from this provided the foundation for his successes in life. Myke sees robotics as a “superset technology” – the integration of different technologies along with some creativity resulting in something to be proud of.
