St. Peter Area Robotics
FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.
The robot is built by the team to meet specific challenges and is programmed with the team’s choice from a variety of programming languages. Awards are given for the competition as well as for design and community outreach. The season runs from late August through January (can be longer if the team advances).
