Welcome to our 2024-25 Season!

The Acadia Robotics Program, through the Jodrey School of Computer Science, offers two junior competition programs,

and a senior competition program

Our Mission: 

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.
