FIRST Tech Challenge is a mid-level robotics competition opportunity for up to 15 members in grades 7-12. FIRST Tech Challenge is an excellent way to experience the power, excitement, and fun of science, technology, engineering, and math and gain insights in the possibility of a technical career. Team members will be involved in the design, implementation, and programming of a robot to participate in a well defined challenge in competition and cooperation with robots from other teams.
