Meet the Virtual Robot Simulator

Wed. February 22, 2023 | 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm CST

Bring the excitement of robotics and hands-on STEM learning to your school with FIRST Illinois Robotics and their Virtual Robot Simulator (VRS).

Through this virtual program, students learn the basics of coding and programming without the costs and logistical demands of traditional robotics hardware. Best of all – VRS is free, making it a perfect pick for educators who want to immediately bring the power of tech-powered problem-solving to life in their classroom.

Join us to learn more about FIRST Illinois Robotics and everything they can do to support your curriculum’s virtual STEM learning. Along the way, attendees will also learn to teach coding the FIRST way as well as explore strategies for using FIRST resources to meet Illinois’ computer science learning standards.

Illinois educators who attend live can earn 1.0 PD credit.
