Students from every high school in the Comox Valley will put their robots to the test this Saturday when School District 71 hosts the annual Vancouver Island VEX Robotics Tournament.

The tournament will be held in the Georges P. Vanier Secondary School gym from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and the public is invited.

More than 30 teams are taking part in the tournament, with every junior and senior high school in the Comox Valley entering at least one team to compete against teams from Nanaimo and Vancouver and one team that is coming all the way from Seattle.

“The game this year is very exciting, with lots of robot interaction,” noted Randy Grey, the district’s career programs co-ordinator.

There will also be a LEGO Robotics demonstration to show where the younger children can start their robotics journey.
