We invite your child to join us for a FREE 90-minute Coding Workshop to give kids a taste of what programming is all about! They will learn how to make a robot move and more in a virtual FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) world using FIRST Robotics Canada FTC SIM.
What Your Child will Learn
Each workshop will be led by two or more instructors from the world of FIRST Robotics Canada. They will teach your child how to code with Blocks or Java and to navigate their robot through increasingly difficult challenges. FIRST Canada is committed to running each session with Gracious Professionalism (GP) at its core. GP is a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work, emphasizes the value of others, and respects individuals and the community. Equity, Diversity, and Inclusivity are one of FIRST Robotics Canada’s five Strategic Pillars. We aim to make our workshops accessible to all.

FTC SIM is a virtual coding tool that allows users to code and run a virtual FIRST® Tech Challenge robot autonomously. It has been curated and refined by seasoned industry specialists along with an internal technology team to teach users everything from basic movement to how to use sensors and various programming syntax.
