FIRST Tech Challenge is designed for 14 to 18 year-old students. Teams of up to 10 students design, build and program their robots to compete in a game of skill and strategy against other teams. The FTC robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and uses a variety of programming languages. Teams including coaches, mentors and volunteers develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles – and then put the robots to the test in annual competitions.
