Montreal - Thursday, May 2, 2019

The English Montreal School Board was represented by 14 schools at the 2019 RoboCupJunior competition at Westmount High School on April 26 and 27.

Students competed from 12 EMSB Elementary Schools (Bancroft in the Plateau; Cedarcrest, Gardenview and Parkdale in St. Laurent; Coronation in Côte des Neiges; Dalkeith in Anjou; Edinburgh in Montreal West; General Vanier and Honoré-Mercier in St. Léonard; Our Lady of Pompei in Ahuntsic; Pierre Elliott Trudeau in Rosemount and Royal Vale in NDG) and two high schools (Royal West Academy in Montreal West and Vincent Massey Collegiate in Rosemount).

Cedarcrest and Gardenview finished first in two categories while General Vanier, Vincent Massey and Royal West triumphed in different competitions as well.

RoboCupJunior Québec is the official event for qualifying teams in OnStage, Rescue and Soccer to participate at the International RoboCup Competition and Conference event. This year, the International event will be Sydney, Australia and for 2020 in Bordeaux, France. All participating school teams are expected to design, program, and build a series of robots to perform an assigned task depending on their category of interest. These tasks are developed by an International team of experts in STEAM programs from around the world.

 “Robotics teams exist to encourage the development of students’ interests in the areas of math and science,” said Cedarcrest Principal Civita Tudino. “By doing so, the program prepares our students to work and thrive in our increasingly technological world and global economy. RoboCupJunior provides an exciting introduction to the field of robotics, a new way to develop technical abilities through hands-on experience with electronics, hardware and software, and a highly motivating opportunity to learn about team work while sharing technology with friends.”

The SuperTeam challenge is a make up of several team of students grouped into one larger team. For example, the OnStage teams who took the Champion trophy, Salsa Spies was made up of the individual team: Diamond Stars (Edinburgh), Fashion Folks (Coronation) and Ariel (Our Lady of Pompei). Students had only a few hours to meet and work with one another, decide which robots to use in a new performance, create a new choreography and come up with a new team name for their OnStage SuperTeam. This challenge allows students to learn from other like-minded, interact with other students and put their skills to the task very quickly.
