Visitors will get hands-on instruction to write simple programs for virtual RobotZ on the MALL’s computers, and then see the RobotZ respond to their commands on the MALL’s projection screens. When the programs are perfected, the visitors will use them to direct miniature physical robots to perform the same actions as the virtual RobotZ.

Launch of the Macdonald Stewart Benefactor’s Circle

11:15-11:50am
Macdonald Stewart Building Faculty Lounge
No charge but registration is required

The Macdonald-Stewart Benefactors Circle was established in 2014 and named in honour of two extraordinary philanthropists whose generosity provided the foundation on which McGill’s Macdonald Campus has flourished: Sir William Macdonald and David M. Stewart.

Since the founding of Macdonald College in 1905, a community of visionary donors – now known as the Macdonald-Stewart Benefactors – has carried on this tradition of philanthropic leadership in support of the Faculty of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences. By listing their names publicly, we recognize their generosity and the tremendous impact that they continue to have on the Faculty, the University, and our capacity to use education to help shape a better world.

You will be piped from this event to the Centennial Centre for the Sir William Macdonald Luncheon.
