Robotics ChallengeFTC Robotics The FIRST
Tech Challenge (FTC)
is designed for students in grades 7 thru 12 to compete head to head, using a sports
model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their
robots in a 10-week build period to compete in an alliance format against other
Students will get an
opportunity to develop and showcase skills in engineering, programming, and
autonomous and remote-controlled vehicle operation as the robot is designed,
built, and finally tested against robots from other teams in competition.
"We are excited to
bring this next stage of engineering and design to our students.
Building a winning FTC robot requires one hundred hours or more by student
teams to design, build, test and program a bot that will score point in the challenge
laid out by FTC. Teams have to expand and apply their knowledge geometry,
physics, and programing in the Python language to produce a winning bot." - Will Herring, MCS Digital Integration Facilitator
