One of the most anticipated annual events at OCAD, the SUMO Robot Challenge features homemade robots in competitions ranging from tug of war, dancer/painter, autonomous, and full out, head to head combat!
Long before the proliferation of robot wars and other similar robotic events that are commonplace today, the SUMO Robot Challenge has invited OCAD artists, designers, local high school students and the general public to compete against each other in competitions that push the limits of their imaginations, electronic, mechanical and fabrication skills. Begun in 1992, the SUMO Robot Challenge is an adrenalin-packed event that is not to be missed!
This event is open to the OCAD community and the general public. All proceeds raised go towards scholarships for OCAD students.
