What is Tech for Kids? What are our goals, our mission?

Tech for Kids is College Regina Assumpta’s multidisciplinary project  centered around robotics, science and technology.

The robotics team, Team 3990: Tech for Kids, annually participates in the FRC, FIRST Robotics Competition. In Quebec, FIRST stands for Fostering Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology. In the US, FIRST means For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology.

Since 2012, young people, together with professional and academic mentors headed by Mr. Sylvain Gauvreau, a science and technology teacher, build a new robot capable of meeting the challenges set by the FRC.

Moreover, outside of the competition season, the team organizes activities and robotics workshops for disadvantaged youth with physical disabilities in the metropolitan region of Montreal. The team members attend training sessions for programming, mathematics, engineering, electrics, pneumatics, project management, communications and finance, in addition to the promotion of robotics as a tool to promote student retention.

Our cause

Resourcefulness, support, confidence. These are values that we try to share through our community involvement. Indeed, small flames we managed to light in the eyes of children during our various workshops helped us  realize that community involvement and  support can be beneficial for both the giver and the receiver.


Tech for Kids is more than 400 children in the Montreal community and its surroundings that hit close to science and technology by participating in robotics workshops. The team is currently associated with three community organizations: The Dr. Julien Foundation, The Revival Youth and Families and Children Foundation in mind. They are disadvantaged or with disabilities, the team wants to show them that anything is possible, that we should not be discouraged, everyone can do it.


FIRST is an organization founded in Manchester (New Hampshire, United States) in 1989 by Dean Kamen, an American entrepreneur anxious to spread his passion for science, engineering and technology among young people in primary and secondary, to encourage them to become the leaders of tomorrow.

Our collège
