#1 - Using SN's "bee bots" which is a great introduction to coding and will also teach kids about pollinators.

#2- Using a set of modular robots called "cubelets" where the kids will connect them in various ways to do differnt activities.

#3 - Lego We Do

For these activities, the children will be put into groups of two and work as partners. We will have a rotation of one child as the "driver," who is using the computer and the other as the "co-pilot," who will make suggestions and review the code that has been written. This is a technique used in industry and reduces the overall number of errors in a code. The participants also need to have basic literacy skills.

NOTE: Supervision of children/youth at this Social Learning Opportunity is the sole responsibility of parents/guardians and caregivers; childcare will not be provided. 

NOTE: Due to allergies and sensitivities, please refrain from wearing perfume, cologne, aftershave, or scented products such as hairspray or lotion.

General FAQ


1.) Do I need to print out ticket or email confirmations to attend this event?

For most of our events there is no need to print anything, unless the event specifies otherwise.  When you arrive at the event, you will have to check in at the registration desk.  You will be asked for your name and how many people are attending with you.  That's all.


2.) Do I need to bring proof of diagnosis?

No, not needed.  Again, just check in at the registration desk and enjoy the event.


3.) Is there a cost to attend this event?

Almost all of our events are free of charge because the cost is covered by Autism Ontario's Potential Programme, in partnership with Ontario’s Ministry of Children & Youth Services and the local Autism Ontario Chapter.  If there is a cost, you will see it on the registration page when you select how many ticket you want.


4.) Do I need to be a member of Autism Ontario to register and participate?

No.  While membership does provide other great opportunities, events provided through Autism Ontario’s Potential Programme are open to all families of children with ASD, under the age of 18, who reside in Ontario.
