Strathcona Christian Academy (SCA) dominated this year's provincial robotics competition.

Nine students helped the school win their second consecutive FIRST Tech Challenge Alberta Championship in Edmonton last weekend.
 
Teams had to design, build and program a robot with sensors, motors, gears and software, then compete against other schools.
 
"I love to see when its kids working on something they're so passionate about," said SCA principal Jon Elzinga.
 
The team, with the assistance of teachers and parents, competed against 32 other groups.
 
SCA will now be preparing for the FIRST World Tech Challenge in Houston, April 18-21.
