McGill Robotics is a student-run organization founded in 2013 by twenty engineering students, that counts about 200 members, coming from a variety of different faculties. They have constructed working models that have been in numerous competitions.

As part of their presentation, which will include slides depicting their involvement in battles, a few of their robotic designs will be on display and at least one will be functioning.
