The First Tech Challenge is a yearlong alliance competition with tight size requirements and predetermined materials.
Meet our Velocity Vortex Robots!
Right now, we are preparing more than ever to make this year a great one for our FTC team.
FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) is an alliance competition from FIRST robotics, and has a yearlong build season. The team is given a challenge that must be completed by a robot that fits into an 18x18x18 inch cube. A kit is given, and CircuitRunners are challenged to use the prefabricated parts to create unique robots. Engineering concepts and design strategies are stressed in FTC robotics.
FIRST is an international organization that allows grade school students to compete in robotics competitions. We build mid sized robots that must fit within a 18 inch cube that are designed to complete a variety of tasks. Each year, FIRST issues a new game, and the students get to redesign and reprogram the robots.
