ACCN has created Canada’s first Black youth robotics team and with the support of FIRST® Robotics Canada (FRC) and will be competing in the 2018 international FRC competition.

We have launched a gofundme  to cover expenses such as parts; competitions; uniforms; transportation and refreshments. We invite you to support this incredible journey. Your generosity will enable these hard-working boys and girls to compete with pride, while benefitting from a life changing experience.

At 10 a.m. January 6 NASA announced the 2018 Build Challenge, giving teams around the world six intensive weeks to build their robot.

The ACCN TECHTRONIX team is made up of 25 youth from different Toronto neighborhoods. Ryerson has generously donated a place for us to build our robot. We also have a dynamic team of Ryerson professors, engineering and design students who are donating their time and talent to teach and mentor the youth.

ACCN created TECHTRONIX to nurture Black youth success in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) careers, and is an outgrowth of its highly successful placement of over 100 talented Black youth in top independent schools over the past 10 years.

The FIRST® Robotics initiative supports a broader population of youth to take their place at the STEM table. Together we can make a difference in the lives of these young people!
