This was the twelfth year for the Provincial Robot Programming Championship in Nova Scotia. This year, the Acadia Robotics team, in cooperation with the Nova Scotia Community College, engaged over 70 FIRST® LEGO® League (junior division) teams and over 20 high school Robofest (senior division) teams. On March 4, 2017, 55 of the best of these teams went to Acadia to compete for the Nova Scotia FLL and Robofest championships.
The competition was fierce! If you were not there, you missed some spectacular moments. The competition involved over 300 team members, coaches and mentors, 135 volunteers, and 30 VIPs from across Nova Scotia and beyond.
The main floor was full of energy, curiosity, and anticipation, and the excitement spilled into the packed stands of cheering family and friends. To see how each team placed, go to: http://robots.acadiau.ca/robotics-home.html
