Welcome to WCRS!
Who are we??
We are a Society dedicated to the advancement of “Personal Robotics” and robotics competitions in Western Canada.
The WCRS is a non-profit organization devoted to nurturing interest in robotics and robotics competition. We are proud hosts of the “Western Canadian Robot Games” (WCRG).
We have our Robot Builders Meetings (RBM) each Saturday morning from 10:00 am until noon at The Hangar Flight Museum (formerly the Aero Space Museum of Calgary). Stop by and say hello. Admission to the museum is free when you tell the staff you are there for the robotic society.
The objectives of the WCRS (as defined by our bylaws ) are:
- To host an annual robotics contest, the Western Canadian Robot Games.
- To promote an interest in amateur robotics through monthly meetings and other special events.
- To provide for the recreation of its members and afford opportunity for friendly and social activities.
- To provide all necessary equipment and furniture for carrying out its various objectives.
- Provide an opportunity for both formal and informal education in robotic applications, hardware and software technologies.
- Encourage participation by all those interested in personal robotics regardless of their level of technical knowledge.
- Facilitate the exchange of information among those with varying abilities, equipment and interests.
- Educate the general public concerning the present and future capabilities of robotics.
