Autopro Proudly Sponsors the Seventh Annual Robotics tournament in Fort McMurray

The robotics tournament, hosted by Fort McMurray Public School District, is gaining ground each year, becoming one of the largest technology events in Fort McMurray. On June 2, 2018, more than 150 students from 16 area schools competed to take the title in two events where their robots demonstrated feats such as jumping over obstacles and racing to perform tasks. While hundreds of spectators watched the fierce battles, the judges also spent time with the teams and contestants, asking questions specific to their robots.

With the impressive level of talent, Jerome Rice, Autopro’s Regional Manager for McMurray, is honored to participate in the event as a volunteer judge. Other staff in the Fort McMurray office offer their time as volunteers as well and enjoy being a part of the event.

As a leader in the industry, Autopro is proud to sponsor an event that engages young people in the field of technology and automation. With the growing demand for highly skilled and technology savvy talent, we believe it is important to inspire our youth to be the next generation of innovative thinkers within our industry.

Thank you to all who participated and we look forward to returning next year!
