2017 CRC Robotics Competition

Thursday, February 16, 2017 to Saturday, February 18, 2017
All Day Event

Come cheer on Vanier’s team as the CRC Robotics Competition kicks off today at the Sports Complex. The event runs until this Saturday. 

It’s going to be another exciting weekend when student-made robots face off during Loops 2017 this year’s CRC Robotics Competition game. Hundreds of excited and ambitious high school and Cegep students will invade the Vanier Sports Complex hoping their imagination and ingenuity will win them the title of the best robot and the best team.

A working robot is only one part of the challenge. In this competition as in today’s work world, it takes all kinds of talents for a project to succeed. It’s this range of abilities and the sense of team spirit that the CRC Robotics Competition aims to recognize with awards in Robot (Game), bilingual Video production, Kiosk, Website, and Engineering Design, and Sportsmanship.

The CRC Robotics Competition is unique because it’s the only robotics competition where all the work is done exclusively by students – teachers, engineers, and outside specialists are welcome but for advice only.  Except for a motor and a control box that each team receives, everything about the robot, the kiosk, the video, and the website is conceived and built by the students, and where language is necessary students must use both French and English.

While the CRC acronym stands for Canadian Robotics Competition (Compétition de Robotique Canadienne), this year, for the first time in a long while, a school from outside of Quebec will compete. École Secondaire Jules Verne from Vancouver British Columbia has sent five students
