At Bialik we understand the importance of providing all our students with as many opportunities as possible to succeed at the career of their choice!CRC ROBOTICS
Bialik was the first Jewish high school to enter the CRC robotics competition and succeeded admirably in its inaugural year. A new challenge is presented each October, followed by four months during which students, teachers and mentors gather to construct a robot.

We are very excited to announce that Bialik High School will have TWO extra-curricular robotics teams this year! Both will attend competitions sponsored by prominent Montreal businesses and the EAST (Educational Aliance for Science & Technology)
1) Jr. Robotics: A LEGO EV3 Robotics team for Grades 7 and 8, will participate in the Robocup event April 2015 at John Rennie High School in Pointe Claire. Sign up will begin in two weeks. The program will run one day a week after school for 1 hour starting in November. More hours just prior to the event. Cost: $100

2. Our Senior Team (Grades 9 through 11) will participant for the third year in the city wide CRC Canadian Robotics Competition. Global News: http://globalnews.ca/news/1166752/when-a-students-performance-depends-on-the-hobot/
The fun, friendly and high intensity event, which is completely bilingual includes: co-operative and competitive robot challenge, building a kiosk, create a bilingual promotional video and creation of a bilingual website.
No experience necessary for student team members! Just a love of tinkering, building, technology and teamwork! There are different tasks for each team member’s interests.
- More than 29 high school and CEGEP teams design and build a robot to accomplish a challenge.
- The final event takes place this year at Vanier College Thursday and Friday, February 12 and 13, 2015
Goals of the competition:
- The process is student oriented and directed. Staff and mentors are on the team to guide the students.
- The project integrates science, math, multimedia, language, arts and technology
- To foster and build team work, communication and that these elements are more important than winning
Weizmann Physics Competition
Each year, our Bialik Physics team participates in the physics safe-breaking competition, the Shalhaveth Freier Physics Tournament, organized by the Weizmann Institute in Israel. The winning team travels to Israel for the final international level competition, which Bialik has been fortunate to attend. Bialik has been a host to the regional competition in years past.

HOPS (Hospital Opportunity Program for Students)
Bialik has participated in the HOPS program for many years and is proud to send four or five students every year. This prestigious program offers an exceptional up-close view of real-world medical practice. For those considering a career as a physician, this is a unique opportunity to follow doctors in: Dermatology, Emergency, Geriatrics, Neonatology, Internal Medicine, Orthopedics, Obstetrics, and Research, to name a few. The commitment is extensive but the experience is invaluable.
Bialik was extremely well represented at McGill University by our intelligent, bright and ambitious students at P.O.W.E (Promoting Opportunities for Women in Engineering).
At Bialik we understand the importance of providing all our students with as many opportunities as possible to succeed at the career of their choice!
