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 kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of languages. Teams, including coaches, mentors, interns, and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for the competition as well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.

The First Tech Challenge is more than a high school robotics program.  It is a community focused on building a better world for tomorrow by engaging high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

FTC is about teaching students the value of hard work, innovation and creativity.  It goes beyond competition by teaching teenagers the importance of working together, sharing ideas and treating each other with respect and dignity.

Is FTC a robotics program? Yes, but it is so much more.  Select a category below to learn how you can get involved.

FTC offers students like you the opportunity to build robots, learn computer programming and Computer Assisted Design (CAD) and compete against other teams at the local, regional and national level!  Teams gain practical, hands-on skills that test the theories and concepts you learn in the classroom.

When you join an FTC team, you join a global community of students who are interested in using technology to build a better world tomorrow.  There are over 20,000 students from around the globe who design and build robots to compete against one another in competition.

In addition to the fun and excitement, FTC students also gain access to over $10 million in college scholarships!
