Montreal - Thursday, March 28, 2019

Rosemount High School (3737 Beaubien Street East) will host the 17th annual Junior Robotics competition March 29 and 30.

Organized by EAST (Educational Alliance for Science and Technology), the event will attract close to 200 elementary and high school students from 11 schools.

 “This is the 17th year we have tasked students with designing, building and programming a robot to compete in one of four events,” said coordinator and Rosemount High School teacher Akim Munro. “There is Football, Creative Performance, Save Metropolis and a Triathlon. The events are designed to push boundaries of design and programming, as well as adapting to unforeseen issues that go hand in hand with the design process.

Everyone leaves having gained something, whether it be a new perspective on teamwork, a better understanding of technical issues such as friction and weight distribution, a first introduction to the STEAM fields or simply just being in a competitive environment for the first time.”
