The robots are back!
Designed to inspire young minds with imaginative play and encourage skill building, Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital has partnered with FIRST® Robotics Canada to construct a unique, inclusive, and interactive program to introduce children and youth with disabilities to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) and robotics.
Robotics will open new opportunities for kids to engage in a ground-breaking robotic LEGO® experience. Through the program, children and youth will:
- Develop and refine decision making and socialization skills.
- Improve their knowledge of STEM.
- Make new friends!
Registration for the Winter 2018 program opens on Monday, October 16, 2017 and closes on Friday, December 1, 2017. Register now to reserve your spot! The program fee is $60 per person ($10 per session, for a total of six sessions).
The program is led by Holland Bloorview and FIRST Robotics Canada staff and volunteers, in a group environment along with individualized support. It is also generously supported by Argosy Foundation.
