2018 Manitoba Robot Games

Despite the date change , which put us into Spring Break, the 23rd Manitoba Robot Games was well attended and lots of fun for all. Thanks to all the volunteers who were able to make it and the financial support we received from Vehicle Technology Centre, MicroPilot, EGM, IEEE, CTTAM, U of M Faculty of Engineering, Emergent BioSolutions and Winnipeg School Division.  To all the contestants, win, loose, or draw, you were ALL winners in our eyes. Congratulations.

We are sorry for all the prospective contestants living to the west of Winnipeg who were unable to make it in due to #1 Hwy being closed on Saturday. We will try to order good weather next year for you!

Here is the list of 2018 MRG Winners.

“Tell us your story”

We at MRG know that building a robot yourself and entering it in the games is a great experience, but we, and our sponsors, would like to hear from former contestants about how your experiences have influenced you.

For instance, one former contestant was so inspired by competing in the Games that he went on to Red River College to study electronics and then worked at Manitoba Hydro. He even volunteered on the MRG executive committee for several years.

Please, tell us your story. Send an email to ian@mbrobotgames.ca with “Tell us your Story” in the subject line.
