The time has come once more for pre-university college students to check their science and know-how expertise within the annual Engineering Robotics Competitors.
Yearly colleges from throughout the Better Toronto Space and Ontario come to Ontario Tech College to be engineers for a day.
On Saturday, November 26, over 40 groups will take part within the fifteenth annual center faculty and highschool competitors, testing college students’ Science, Know-how, Engineering and Arithmetic (STEM) expertise. Over the previous two months, scholar groups used LEGO Mindstorm applied sciences (programmable robots based mostly on LEGO constructing blocks) to design, construct, program, and take a look at ‘sumo bots’ for a full contact enviornment battle, with the top objective of being the final robotic standing.
Ontario Tech professors, undergraduate, and graduate college students are excited to welcome college students to campus to share their ardour for STEM. One organizer for this yr’s competitors, Sydney Smith, participated within the 2014 robotics competitors and determined then that she would pursue software program engineering at Ontario Tech. Right this moment, Sydney is an Ontario Tech graduate and works because the Engineering Outreach Program Co-ordinator within the School of Engineering and Utilized Sciences (FEAS).
“I’m excited to share my pleasure of know-how and downside fixing with this yr’s opponents,” says Smith. “It looks like not way back I used to be right here within the gymnasium cheering by myself sumo bot. It admittedly got here nowhere close to to successful however the pleasure I had was immeasurable.”
The Engineering Robotics Competitors is organized by the college’s Engineering Outreach workplace, which delivers engineering outreach applications to Kindergarten to Grade 12 college students in Durham Area and surrounding communities.
