Halton District School Board students captured the highest number of awards in the 59th annual Bay Area Science and Engineering Fair (BASEF) in Hamilton from March 29 - April 2. More than 450 students took part in the ArcelorMittal Dofasco-sponsored BASEF at Mohawk College, where more than $300,000 worth of prizes were awarded to celebrate young science and engineering enthusiasts.

Within the HDSB, 15 schools participated with students creating 160 projects and capturing 147 prizes while competing against six other school boards and independent schools.

A big congratulations to M.M. Robinson student Monica Mahut for ‘Elevator to Everywhere’  who qualified for the Canada Wide Science Fair, taking place mid-May, in Fredericton, New Brunswick.  


Rambotics:

Rambotics - 2200

There was so much support at the tournament at McMaster! Students did well to end in 9th (considering very difficult match alliances). They combined with Burlington Central, to make it to semi-finals, and they earned the quality award (recognition of the robot's robustness in concept and fabrication - and our team's strength as well).

The team will be competing in Provincials at Paramount Fine Foods in Mississauga (formerly Hershey's Centre).

* Some students will be there Thursday and all will attend Friday and Saturday.

Currently, the team is 10th out of 173 teams in Ontario!!
