Team 781, the Kinetic Knights is a FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) team run by students from Kincardine District Secondary School in Southwestern Ontario. The team was formed during the 2001-2002 season with generous help from Bruce Power and Power Workers' Union Training Inc.

The Kinetic Knights have always been very much involved in the community. In 2005, the team became mentors for the local FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams in the community. They went to elementary schools within a 20KM radius to assist children of ages 9 to 14 with various jobs like building, designing, and programming their robot built out of Lego bricks. Many of those elementary students who participated in FLL later became members of Team 781.

With hard work comes rewards. Over the years, the Kinetic Knights have accomplished many of their goals. One of Team 781's proudest achievements was winning the Canadian Regional in 2002 and continuing on to the Championship Event later held in Florida.

In the near future, the Knights are hoping to attain another Regional Championship. Presently the team is working hard towards victory, both with the robot and FIRST's most prestigious achievement, the Chairman's Award.
