Robotics at Western has emerged as a flagship program at the Toronto District School Board. Consider the facts:
- Western Technical-Commercial School is Specialist High Skills Major Certified in Robotics Manufacturing (a unique supplemental certification offered through the Ministry of Education)
- 10 FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Awards in the past 10 years
The word is getting out that our Robotics Program is flourishing – This chart shows how the program has expanded the past 4 years. The number of students in the graph represent the number of grade 8’s entering Western into the reserved Robotics pathway.
The team is presently gearing up for a Skilled Trades Showcase promoting Robotics to elementary students. Our presentations are well received, getting the highest ranking from elementary students as per the T.D.S.B. Research and Data Collection Department.
Great engineering and innovation happens at Western!
