The University of Victoria is hosting a series of workshops to help FIRST Tech Challenge teams learn the skills for designing, building and programming robots. Most of the workshops will be lead by FIRST alumni who are current UVic students.
The workshops will be held at the University of Victoria on Friday afternoons from 4:30 to 6:00pm. The room changes depending on the topic.
