Vanier Robotics wins at the CRC Robotics Competition!
On February 25-27, 2016, Vanier College’s Robotics Team competed against 24 other high schools and CEGEPs in the CRC Robotics Competition, Pythagorium 2016, for their chance to defend the cup. Although Vanier did not achieve an overall first place win this time around, they did rank 4th overall. They also won the following awards:
- 1st place for kiosk
- 1st place for web journalism
- 1st place for robot design
- 2nd place for web design
- 3rd place for video production
Despite the challenges of competing with a non-functioning robot for the first two days of the competition, Vanier’s team was able to make the necessary fixes and ended up qualifying for the quarter-finals before being eliminated.
A special thank you goes out to John Lynch and the Service Department for their mentorship, materials, and assistance with carpentry; and Vanier Security for putting up with our late nights pre-competition.
