On June 11, 2023, five member of the Pink Titans participated in the annual Girls & Allies Youth Summit at The Kingsbridge Centre, in King City, Ontario. The students met many other students in the FTC and FRC programs across Ontario. The students listened to Jamie McMillian, the inspiring keynote speaker who spoke about a career in the trades. The students participated in an exercise in collaboration, creativity, and design to construct an autonomous vehicle for a particular customer of General Motors. After a delicious lunch, the students asked many questions to mentors from the industrial sector. The students participated in the collaborative activity to program a LEGO SPIKE Prime robot, then played a trivia game. Thanks so much FIRST Canada for the opportunity!
