What is FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC)?
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete against other teams. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of systems. Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop a strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. The FIRST Tech Challenge is more than a robotics program. We are a community focused on building a better world for tomorrow by engaging students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
