The first Junior Robotics Competition was held in 2002 for elementary and high school students in the Montreal area using the Lego Robotics Mind storm platform. Students are asked to program robots in order to meet a challenge designed for the competition. During the two-day event, students compete in a very dynamic, high energy and exciting environment learning team work skills in a camaraderie atmosphere.
