This event combines the excitement of sport with the rigours of science and technology. High school students will showcase their design and engineering skills and compete in Canada’s largest high school robotics competition. With strict rules and limited resources, the teams have raised funds, designed a team brand, honed teamwork skills, and built and programmed robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors. Don’t miss the fleet of the most advanced intelligent robots and robotics teams from across Ontario.All FIRST Canada events are open to the public and free.
Western University is situated on the traditional territories of the Anishinaabeg, Haudenosaunee, Lunaapeewak and Attawandaron peoples, who have longstanding relationships to the land and region of southwestern Ontario and the City of London. The local First Nation communities of this area include Chippewas of the Thames First Nation, Oneida Nation of the Thames, and Munsee Delaware Nation. In the region, there are eleven First Nation communities and a growing Indigenous urban population.
