About Us

Through the innovative FIRST program, our students build self-confidence, knowledge, and life skills that will help motivate them to pursue opportunities in science, technology, and engineering. They will apply classroom lessons in math, science, and technology and develop teamwork and real-world problem solving skills as they compete with and against teams from around Canada, the United States and the World. Our students learn engineering and design skills, along with developing leadership, business, public speaking, coaching, and communication skills. We look to provide these students the necessary skills to become the next generation of engineers and technologists.

“Niagara Robotics is filling a void that local elementary and high schools have in technical training.”

“ Niagara Robotics is filling a void that local elementary and high schools have in technical training. We are helping students across the Region learn skills they would otherwise never obtain. This is giving a future to both the individual and the community to have an educated and skilled workforce.”
