On Saturday, November 16, join Ontario Tech University’s Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science at its 14th-annual high school Engineering Robotics Competition. More than 50 teams of students have worked hard to design, build and program Sumo-bots using a LEGO Mindstorm kit. The teams have combined their skills in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to give their robot the best chance to be a champion. Months of work culminate at this event, where the teams battle in a ‘sumo-style’ competition. The autonomous robots have to push each other out of a competition ring with no human control. The last robot standing is dubbed ‘king of the hill’. Find all event details and schedule here.
