Skills Ontario LEGO Mechanics Challenge


Orange STEM has a long history of involvement with LEGO® competitions including Skills Ontario, the IEEE Ottawa Robotics Competition, First® LEGO League, and our own Annual Robotics & Engineering Challenge. 

Each spring for nine years (to 2019), Orange STEM has run the Annual Robotics & Engineering Challenge for elementary and middle school students in partnership with First Avenue Public School. This fun, informal competition draws over twenty teams each year from public, private and home schools across Ottawa.

In 2014, Ian was a Marshall for the Ontario Skills Canada LEGO Mechanics Challenge in Waterloo, and each year since he has been either a Co-Chair or Tech Chair for the Ontario Skills LEGO Robotics Challenge or LEGO Mechanical Engineering Challenge.

If you are looking to prepare teams for LEGO contests, or to host a LEGO challenge, large or small, please contact Ian for more information at
