Description: This event is free and open to the public. High School and Middle School robotics teams who have qualified from across Virginia compete to win a place at the FTC Super Regional. Top winners from the Super Regional will go on to the FTC World Championship in St. Louis, MO.

 

FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC)  is designed for students who want to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams of up to 10 students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their own robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.  Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for the competition as for well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.

 

Students get to: 

 

  • Design, build, and program robots
  • Apply real-world math and science concepts
  • Develop problem-solving, organizational, and team-building skills
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  • Earn a place in the World Championship
  • Qualify for nearly $19 million in college scholarships
