The Central Vancouver Island Skills Canada Regional Event was held at VIU and secondary schools in Nanaimo Ladysmith Public Schools (NLPS) on February 22. Students from NLPS as well as the Cowichan Valley and Powell River school districts were competing. Great job to the organizers for keeping track of races and schedules – impressive! And to the students, WOW! Attention to detail was apparent in all the competition areas. The Junior Skills competition provided some interesting bots with special capabilities and it looks like the island is going to have some great chefs, photographers and engineers. Here’s a sneak peak from a few of the competitions.
