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.

Triathlon
The Triathlon games introduced at the 2016 JRC proved to be very popular. This year, in order to keep our students challanged, one of the three games is replaced by two games; "Lawn Distance" for the Primary Level and "Lawn Area" for the Secondary Level. The competing students must follow all the regulations and ensure that no major changes are made to their robots between the three games. A team may be disqualified by the judge if that occurs.
