About the CRC Robotics


The annual CRC Robotics competition was founded in 2001 by a group of professional athletes unhappy with the lack of robotics competitions available for high school and CEGEP students in Canada. The competition invites young new talented athletes from all around the country to show off their skills in the diverse fields of the competition. The competition is based around science, technology, engineering, mathematics, arts and languages. The three-day sports event is run by former participants with the goal of giving students the same experiences they received themselves.

Design and construct a robot


Each team must design and construct a robot athlete capable of achieving the many tasks it must perform to compete against the opposing teams. The course and its many features vary every year. Over the span of three days, the athletes and their coaching staff are the center of all the attention with fans and cameras flooding from around the world as millions of people watch from home and on the stands as history unfolds.

Program the robot


Without the programmers, our robot wouldn’t be able to do much. The programming aspect of the competition is one of the most crucial parts of the competition. This section of the tournament is usually what makes or breaks a team.

Build a kiosk


Every great sports event needs a great broadcasting room. Therefore, teams are tasked with creating and designing a broadcasting room/kiosk. The kiosk must measure 12' × 12' and be themed according to the team's theme. The kiosk is also a good spot for the coaches and captains to plan out their strategy and next moves.

Design and build a website


Teams are tasked with creating a website from scratch with the intention of documenting the progress of the team as they move forward with the creation of the robotic athlete while still following the chosen theme. The website includes videos, pictures, articles, and much more.

Write and produce a video


Each team must produce a five-minute sports video, presenting their school, the construction of the robotic athlete, and talk about the CRC competition in a unique and themed way.
