FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) - Grades 6-8
Code, Design, and Compete with Robots!
FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.
