Start a FIRST Tech Challenge Team
Starting a FIRST Tech Challenge team is relatively easy. Best advice is to learn about the program, find interested students, a few adults to be mentors and proceed to nationally register the team. Teams exist many different ways. Teams form as an after-school activity, as part of in-classroom curriculum, club activity such as 4-H or Scouts, a neighborhood or organization team.

After registering with the national FIRST Organization, ORTOP staff will contact you about registering for local leagues and tournaments.
