About

The excitement of sports + the rigors of science and technology.

 

It’s more than robots.

FIRST TECH CHALLENGE

 

Designed for middle- and high-school age students who want to compete head to head using a sports model. Teams design, build, and program their robots to compete on a 12 X 12’ field in an Alliance format against and with other teams.
