Students in grades 7–12 in FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) teams are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete head to head and make alliances with other teams. Participants develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. Teams also must raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach for which they can win awards. Each season concludes with Super-Regional Championships and an exciting championship competition.
