The Robotics Club participated in Maritime themed competitions, with events like ship building, using ten different parts, and a Maritimes themed obstacle course filled with familiar landmarks. 

The team of seven, and their robot, fought hard. But due to unforeseen challenges, as Mr. Melendy puts it, the team fell behind. But they still managed to fight their way to second place.

The team from Louis J. Robichaud High school, in Shediac, were the winners of the provincial title, and will move on to the Nationals that will be held here in Moncton.
