first tech challenge
It’s way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to play a floor game in an alliance format.
The positive impact on FIRST Tech Challenge participants is gratifying and well documented. Over 84% have more interest in school, 84% have more interest in taking a challenging math or science course, and 86% are more interested in attending college.
The really cool thing about FIRST Tech Challenge is being part of a team. All skill levels are welcomed and needed, technical and non-technical. Read on for more about team basics, time frame, commitment, and skills required.
