Dominic Bruneau began to take an interest in robotics himself during his university studies. He even started the robotics club at the Polytechnic school. His first experiences in competition allowed him to experience great successes, which were of great importance to him. He therefore believes that we should not wait at university level before getting young people to discover and take an interest in robotics.

In his role at Robotics Zone01, he supports teachers from several French-speaking schools in Canada in the development of activities related to robotics. The organization then regularly takes young people to international competitions. For example, the World Robot Olympiad, held in Costa Rica this year, hosted no less than 400 teams from 55 countries, with young people in grades 5-6 from primary through university.

His advice for those who are unfamiliar with it, but who want to start educational robotics: you have to get started! We can start with a guided challenge proposed by Zone01, which comes with a certain procedure to follow, and which guarantees a positive and interesting experience to live in the classroom, in order to give everyone the taste and the desire to go further!
