FIRST Tech Challenge
The FIRST Tech Challenge is an organization in where teams register and compete at compitions. Members from grades 7-12 design, build, program, and operate robots to compete head to head in a alliance format. One of the biggest parts of being in the FTC is teamwork. Not all the wrok is technical, so you don't need technical skills to participate. The design and build phase start during september, when the new season's game is annouced. Tournaments start as early as October to April. Winners of regionals and states can progress to Super-Regional Championships. Teams are expected to fundraise and keep a engineering book of all the progress in design and programming. Teams also can do community outreach and can win awards. The FTC values innovation, hard work, and idea-sharing, to help your team climb to the top.
