FIRST Tech Challenge

 

         

FIRST Tech Challenge is a robotics sport like competition for students grades 7-12. Teams of up to 15 students design, build, and program robots to compete head-to-head against other teams. Robots are programmed using Java and controlled by smart phones and tablets. Teams develop strategies and build their robots based on comprehensive engineering principles. Team awards are given for winning game match play as well as for robot design, creative problem solving, collaborative teamwork and community outreach.
