Right after the start of our journey, the members of NDITC got their first opportunity to participate in the first Robot Contest for Colleges on 21-22 March,2018 which was held at United International University. Workshops on programming and robotics were arranged on the first day. Hundreds of students from 11 colleges around the city attended the workshops. On the second day, a team of 5 members from each institution participated in a line following competition based on what they were taught the previous day in the workshops. Each team had one hour to program a line follower robot using Scratch programming. In that competition, the team from Notre Dame College got the honor of being the Champion and got a prize money of taka 1 lac only. They were also invited to the Grameenphone Accelerator program.
