We had a very exciting event with 18 teams, 18 robots, 18 presentations!!! All teams had to design, build and program a robot to complete a task… the 2011 Challenge was to build a four colour bubblegum sorting robot.
Fanshawe College’s Freddie the Falcon flew in to join us and the College Ave Secondary School Hospitality and Tourism (Cooking) Program students created the refreshments!
Media came out to see what all the commotion was about. Coverage from Heart FM and the Sentinel Review.
Thank you to our judges, John Makaran Chair, Manufacturing Sciences at Fanshawe College; Mark Harrison, Ministry Training Colleges University, Area Service Manager and Mark Groen, Toyota Motor Manufacturing Canada Inc. Congratulations to all teams, team leaders and mentors!
