Once again welcome to our website! I felt it was appropriate to give a background on FTC Robotics. FTC is an acroynm for First Technology Challenge and is a ‘sport for the mind’ that consist of children in grades 7-12. The first season was in 2005 and has been going since. First (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) has created more than a robotics program they have created a community focused on building a better world for tomorrow by engaging students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Every season (September-May) a team must create a robot that can preform that year’s challenge, show spirit and enthusiasm, keep a log book with activities and reflections, as well as many other tasks. This seasons challenge is called Cascade Effect and if you want to get an idea about it you can watch a video on it at http://youtube/ABmBxCwHV94 or if you are interested at learning more about FTC you are welcome to check it out at http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc. Back to work!!!
