Boosting block coding skills with a virtual robot

Getting a handle on programming our bot with block code is one of our biggest challenges. Especially since we usually have to gather around a robot that’s booted up and connected to a phone and laptop.

But now we found a virtual robot at It’s from FIRST FTC in Canada, and we have to thank them big time. Now we’re able to program a digital robot and make it go, do programming games, challenges and more.

It really helped our lead programmer Kris and the team with programming our autonomous programs and will keep us moving forward in block code—even when we each have to work remotely without Mighty Thelonious. Go to and let us know how far your virtual robot goes!
