PRESENTED BY:

Logo for the Carleton University Faculty of Engineering & Design

HOSTED BY:

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!

Parking

Drop-off and accessible parking is available in front of Residence Commons. There are multiple lots and garages across campus available for team parking, the closest of which is Parking Garage P18, which is shown on the map below.

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.
