FAST Welcomes FIRST Robotics Competition

April 1, 2022

Sounds of metal clanging, power tools buzzing and engines whirring filled the Athletic Centre at Humber College’s North Campus in early March as 450 high school students took part in the FIRST Robotics Ontario Division Competition. Dr. Shaun Ghafari and Dr. Farzad Rayegani welcomed more than 30 teams representing schools from London to Kingston.

During the two-day competition, Ontario students flexed their engineering, coding and design skills as they put their homemade robots to the test in a series of specially designed challenges.

This event combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science & technology and empowers competitors to be the next generation to solve the world’s toughest challenges.

Special shout out to all of the technologists, Michael Auchincloss and the team at Carrier Drive who provided mentorship and support throughout the weekend.

Watch this video to be inspired by the leaders, innovators & engineers of tomorrow!
