Students from Azilda's École Ste-Marie took first place in Grade 7 and 8 division at the 11th annual Great Robotics Challenge (Grand défi robotique) at Science North Feb. 27.

In the Grade 4 to 6 division, students from École St-Joseph in Dubreuilville took first prize.

The Grand défi robotique enables Conseil scolaire catholique du Nouvel-Ontario elementary school students to display their creativity, ingenuity and tenacity.

This friendly competition encourages teamwork while initiating youngsters to the world of engineering and technology.

Each team comprised of four students was asked to construct a robot made from LEGO NXT blocks. The robots were then tested in two different contests, which measured the strength and precision of the machines as well as the success of its programming and level of control by its student masters.

Junior Division (grades 4 to 6):
1st place: Robo Planto, École St-Joseph (Dubreuilville)
2nd place: 2 gars, 2 filles et un robot, École Notre-Dame de la Merci (Coniston)
