All Girls Robot Fight Club


Did you know that each year Manitoba hosts its very own Robot Games?

The 24th annual Manitoba Robot Games will be taking place at Tec-Voc School in March 2019.

These games offer a number of competitions, and WISE KE is excited to participate with ALL GIRLS teams in the LEGO MINDSTORMS category. Participants are welcome to sign up with a partner; if participants don't have a partner, they will be paired up with another participant. (Registration for each club member must be done separately. The registration form will ask who their teammate is.)

To prepare for the games we are running an All-Girls Robot Fight Club! A membership in this club includes seven - 4 hour sessions with University of Manitoba undergraduate student instructors, the registration fee for the Manitoba Robot Games, and the use of WISE KE's EV3 Lego Mindstorms for training and competing.

Last year we placed first, second and third in the Lego NXT/Mindstorm Autonomous category!
