Roboticon 2016 – Registration Now Open!

Roboticon is back for the 15th year at College Royal at the University of Guelph!

The School of Computer Science would like to invite you to Roboticon 2015. This year’s robot-building and programming challenge will be occurring on Saturday, March 19th & Sunday, March 20th, 2016 at the University of Guelph.

Thank You

Several days ago the School of Computer Science's Roboticon crowdfunding campaign met its target, and we'd like to thank everyone who has helped make the campaign a success.

The goal of the campaign was to raise $1500 to fund the purchase of 3 new LEGO Mindstorm EV3 kits. With your help, we've met our goal. Even better, the Dean of the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences is matching the donations - which means we'll be able to purchase 6 new kits, and invite more schools to the annual Roboticon event.

Crowdfunding For The SoCS

The School of Computer Science is proud to launch the 2015 crowdfunding campaigns for the Roboticon and Farm To Fork projects - part of the Guelph Gives campaign, and Giving Tuesday.
