Vernon’s own Robo Bros. are set to present their award-winning creations at the Okanagan Science Centre.

Brothers Hudson, 14, and Nelson Schier, 12, have been creating robots for the last four years, competing regionally and internationally as the team ‘Robo Bros’.

The duo has won numerous awards, including top place at this year’s Western Canada RoboCup Junior Games and in the 2011 World RoboCupJunior Championship in Istanbul, Turkey.

They will be appearing at the Okanagan Science Centre, a proud sponsor of Robo Bros., this Saturday at 2:30 p.m. to present their award-winning collection of dancing and soccer-playing robots.

Robo Bros.   first competed internationally at the RoboCupJunior Games in 2009 in Austria, and continued to represent Canada at the 2010 competition in Singapore and in the 2011 competition in Istanbul. With each competition the pair gained experience and knowledge.

Combined with their ambition and hard work, Hudson and Nelson were inspired to create more advanced robots every year. When they took home the World Championship title in Istanbul this summer, it marked the first time a Canadian team has ever won the honour.
