Converto 2018

February 1st-3rd, 2018 @ Laval Senior Academy

Participants, parents, teachers, and partners,

Welcome to Converto 2018, the 17th annual competition organised by CRC Robotics, in collaboration with the Educational Alliance for Science and Technology (EAST). After three months of hard work and countless hours of design and construction, close to 40 teams will show off what their robot can do. Also, the students will be showcasing their school and accomplishments in their kiosk, on their website, and in their video.

This event would have never been made possible without the organising committees, whose efforts are always greatly appreciated. Thank you to the host school, Laval Senior Academy, for welcoming us so dearly. Thank you to the school board for their pedagogical and monetary support. Thank you to our partners for their financial contributions, which have made such a competition affordable. Finally, a special thank you to the teachers, mentors, and parents who believe in our approach to learning; without them, there would be no participants. Good luck!
