“What an electrifying atmosphere it was!” stated event coordinator Nijad Dahdah. “Royal West Academy proved once again to be a great host for the Junior Robotics Competition. All the main floor of the school was open for the use of the students; three gyms, the auditorium and the cafeteria. The RWA administration, staff, and many student volunteers did a fantastic job during the event and the days leading to it.”
