Students at Castlebrooke SS will host its 4th annual VEX Robotics Competition in Brampton on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. At the competition, 25 teams from schools across Ontario will show off their robots and put them to the test in a friendly competition comprised of using the robots to strategically move and stack cones.
Students will take part in Castlebrooke's qualifier competition. The winner will have the opportunity to move onto Provincials and World championships. Castlebrooke's Team 356 has competed at the World championships in California and Louisville, Kentucky three times in the past four years.
The robotic competition is part of a larger school initiative to support the Specialist High Skills Major program that focuses on a number of subjects, including Information and Communications Technology (ICT).
