OUR COMPETITIONS AND WORKSHOPS WILL BE OFFERED IN-PERSON FOR THE 2023-2024 CHALLENGE SEASON
Welcome to our 2023-24 Season!
The Acadia Robotics Program, through the Jodrey School of Computer Science, offers two junior competition programs,
- FIRST® LEGO® League Challenge, Grades 4-9, February 17th, 2024
- Robofest Junior Game, Grades 5-8, February 18th, 2024
and a senior competition program

Our mission is to provide opportunities for students to expand their computer science knowledge by competing in annual robot programming competitions and related activities that feature real-world problem solving and teamwork.
Outreach provided throughout the season culminates in the Maritime Robot Programming Championship here at Acadia University each February, involving over 400 participants, 150 volunteers, media, and many organizations. We depend heavily on financial support from external organizations and the committed volunteers who annually contribute to the season from late August through to mid-June.
