RoboGames sponsors gathered in Castlegar in advance of the fourth Annual RoboGames, taking place this Saturday (February 20) at Selkirk College’s Tenth Street Campus in Nelson.

A Kootenay Association for Science and Technology/GLOWS/Nelson Tech Club initiative, RoboGames has doubled in size over last year’s event with 40 plus teams made up of over 70 students from Nelson, Castlegar, Rossland, Trail, Krestova and New Denver.

Participants compete in a number of robot challenges including robot soccer, an obstacle course, a special trick competition and robot battles. With hands-on robotics training provided by Nelson Tech Club’s President, Brad Pommen, students and adult mentors took part in eight weeks of robotics design, programming and circuit training to build their robots.

RoboGames is a free event open to the public.
