Thirty-two teams from all over Ontario competed in the event that tested computer programming, engineering, teamwork and problem solving skills. Lego Mindstorm EV3 robots were designed, programmed and assembled to solve two different and extremely challenging problems. To learn more about Roboticon, check out: http://socis.ca/roboticon/
