Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario (CSCNO) students will participate in the Great Robotic Challenge (Le Grand Défi Robotique) Feb. 27.

This friendly contest for Grade 4 to 8 students representing nine CSCNO French Catholic elementary schools will see them strive to build the most efficient robot.

Le Grand Défi Robotique requires each team to build a robot made from LEGO NXT blocks that will see its quality tested during two different contests.

These trials will measure the robot’s strength and precision, as well as the success of its programming and level of control by its student masters.

Because the robots will have to accomplish different tasks, student teams will be able to modify their machine’s construction and programming between the trials.

Prizes will be awarded for efficiency, quality of school banners, as well as their team cheer.
