For the first time ever the Robotics Canada Regional competition is taking place in Northern Ontario and North Bay is the host. The competition will attract one thousand students, their robots, teachers and families. The winners go on to the world championships next month in St. Louis, Missouri. To help out, FedNor is giving Nipissing University, where the competition is taking place, $45,000. The robotics championships run March 26th to the 29th.
