Notice of convocation - Judges Award for Perseverance

Montreal Youth Shine at the FIRST International Robotics Competition in Toronto

MONTREAL, April 7 /CNW Telbec/ - Youth Fusion is pleased to announce that, during the FIRST International Robotics Competition held in Toronto last weekend, Pierre-Dupuy High School received the Judges Award for Perseverance. While Saint-Henri High School made it all the way to the semi-finals.

Since the launch of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science Technology) in the United States, no Montreal public high school had ever participated in this important international competition. This year, 45 students from 4 Montreal high schools: Honoré-Mercier (CSDM), Pierre-Dupuy (CSDM), Saint-Henri (CSDM) and Henri-Bourassa (CSPI), built 4 robots capable of playing soccer and evaluated at $100,000. Their participation was made possible thanks to the involvement of the following partners: BMO Financial Group-Quebec, Bell, Bombardier Inc., CAE, Hydro-Québec and Vigilant Futures.

These four robots will be presented to the Montreal public during the CSDM's Symposium de science et technologie to be held at the Montreal Science Centre located at 333, rue de la Commune ouest:
