Ontario Tech acknowledges the lands and people of the Mississaugas of Scugog Island First Nation.

We are thankful to be welcome on these lands in friendship. The lands we are situated on are covered by the Williams Treaties and are the traditional territory of the Mississaugas, a branch of the greater Anishinaabeg Nation, including Algonquin, Ojibway, Odawa and Pottawatomi. These lands remain home to many Indigenous nations and peoples.

We acknowledge this land out of respect for the Indigenous nations who have cared for Turtle Island, also called North America, from before the arrival of settler peoples until this day. Most importantly, we acknowledge that the history of these lands has been tainted by poor treatment and a lack of friendship with the First Nations who call them home.

This history is something we are all affected by because we are all treaty people in Canada. We all have a shared history to reflect on, and each of us is affected by this history in different ways. Our past defines our present, but if we move forward as friends and allies, then it does not have to define our future.

Ri3D

Located in Ontario Tech's Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) facility, we design, build and program robots in three days to complete the annual challenges of the FIRST Robotics Competition. With a team of over 50 dedicated students, we strive to provide innovative and creative solutions to relevant engineering issues that we face in today's modern society.​ We also offer a mentorship program for local highschool robotics teams.

In the hopes of presenting insight and different design concepts to competing FRC teams, we explore different approaches to the game and live stream the course of our 3 day build season on our YouTube and Twitch channels, as well as publish coding resources on our GitHub.

Get Involved

Students can get involved as a mentor, a 3-day challenger, or both! This year our official Ri3D event will be held on January 4th and 5th. If you're interested in joining, please fill out an application form.

2020 FIRST Robotics Competition Kickoff Information: https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/frc/kickoff


Located in Ontario Tech's Automotive Centre of Excellence (ACE) facility, we design, build and program robots in three days to complete the annual challenges of the FIRST Robotics Competition. With a team of over 50 dedicated students, we strive to provide innovative and creative solutions to relevant engineering issues that we face in today's modern society.

Every year, the FIRST Robotics Competition releases a new challenge to both high school and community robotics teams around the world, each consisting of students in grades 9 through 12. At the end of the kickoff event on January 5, the teams are then faced with the task of designing and building a robot that is suited to compete in the challenge against the robots of other teams.

In the hopes of presenting insight and different design concepts to competing FRC teams, we explore different approaches to the game and live stream the course of our 3 day build season on our YouTube and Twitch channels, as well as publish coding resources on our GitHub.
