Students from Arnprior’s Walter Zadow Public School are Renfrew County’s hope to claim the Eastern Ontario Robotics Championships being held Saturday in Oshawa. This year’s competitive theme is “Into Orbit”.
Water Zadow Wildcat Wizards teacher and Coach Heather Gauthier says the team is meeting its challenge by designing and demonstrating a soundwave fire extinguisher that could be used on the International Space Station.
Other aspects of the Regional Competition include demonstrating the principle of inclusion in the execution of the project, and competition in the Robot Game, a 2.5 minute exercise at which the Wildcat Wizards placed second in the preliminaries. Walter Zadow Robotics students are going up against about 40 teams from Eastern Ontario, and will know whether they are successful by day’s end.
