History | Ottawa Robotics Competition


The competition started in 2003 with an effort from IEEE Ottawa members. Wanting to promote engineering to the younger generation, the dedicated team of organizers put together the event. Despite the challenges of organizing a competition for the first time, the first IEEE Ottawa Section Robotics Competition took place on April 27th, 2003. Five teams from four different schools competed at the Canada Science and Technology Museum. The event was so successful that the following year, on April 25th, 2004, fourteen teams took part in the competition. The third competition in 2005 attracted a total of seventeen schools and the competition has steadily expanded since then, with new schools and challenges being added.
