This weekend more than 250 grade 7 to 12 students on 33 different teams will be going head to head, putting more than four months’ worth of research, design, and programming to the test in our Alberta Championship.  

The adventure-themed challenge of this year, Relic Recovery, has students using their robots to decipher glyphs, take jewels, and yes, you guessed it, recover relics.  Join us at the Telus World of Science for this action-packed competition, pick your favourite robots to cheer for, and see who will be crowned as champion!

Here’s a sneak peek of one of this year’s competitors…!
