UOIT Robotics Competition

UOIT Engineering Robotics Competition

The UOIT Robotics Competition provides an affordable option for elementary and high schools to compete in a fun and engaging autonomous robotic competition using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® robot kit for over 10 years.  Students will be applying science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts to their creations as they prepare to face-off in the SumoBot octagon against other teams from across the GTA.

The 2018 competition will be held on Saturday, November 24.  Teams are also invited to two workshops/practice sessions on the UOIT campus to help gain new skills and meet some of our Faculty of Engineering & Applied Science mentors. 

Workshop #1                        Saturday, October 27, 2018

Workshop #2                        Saturday, November 10, 2018

Competition Day                   Saturday, November 24, 2018
