U Vic played host to a massive Robotics Challenge this weekend.
High School students from across BC; Washington State and Romania were competing in the BC First Tech Challenge. Contestants are challenged to design; build and program their own robot to perform a series of tasks.
Dorian Munro with the "Belmont Bites" says the competition provides great hands on experience. " For us we want to go into engineering, we'll never get this opportunity in High School unless we go into these kind of programs." The winner gets a shot at the World championships in Houston.
