First Tech Challenge Opportunities
First Tech Challenge is a robotics competition based on a sports mode. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete as alliances against other teams. FTC is open to students in grades 7 - 12.
Students in Rockford Publics Schools are encouraged to join their school teams. Other interested students are invited to attend Rockford Robotics Recruitment Meeting.
All aspiring FTC members can join us on Saturday September 6, 2014 at The Discovery Center Museum for the FIRST Tech Challenge Kick-Off Event!
Team members and mentors will be provided with specialized workshops from experienced FTC students and mentors that will help rookie teams get off to a great start. In addition teams will view the 2014-15 FTC game challenge and view the game pieces on the FTC field. Please bring a sack lunch, beverages and snacks for yourself.
Please RSVP to Chris Magee at email@example.com
This event is free of charge thanks to the generosity of the members of Rockford Maker’s Network.
