2019 Ottawa FIRST LEGO League Tournament
FIRST LEGO League is the most accessible, guided robotics competition in the world, helping students and teachers to build a better future together. The program is built around theme-based Challenges to engage children aged 9 to 14 (Grades 4 to 8) in research, problem-solving, programming, and engineering. The foundation of the program are the FIRST Core Values, which emphasizes teamwork, discovery, and innovation. Students emerge more confident, excited, and equipped with the skills they need in a changing workforce.
This annual tournament allows teams from across the Ottawa area and Eastern Ontario to compete with their research projects and robots against other local teams for the opportunity to progress to the Ontario East Provincial Championships in Oshawa!
Date: Sunday, December 1st, 2019
Time: 8AM – 5:15PM
Cost: FREE for Spectators, Teams must pay their Registration Fees, $6 for All-Day Parking Pass
All members of the FIRST community across Eastern Ontario are more than welcome to join us, including friends and family! We also encourage teams to invite their sponsors, partners, local politicians, and other special invited guests to attend and learn more about FIRST Robotics.

All parking lots on the Carleton campus require proof-of-payment displayed in the front windshield, therefore, all vehicles must have a Parking Pass visible at all times while in the lot. Parking passes can be purchased for $6 for the day, with red pay stations located at each parking lot.
