FIRST TECH CHALLENGE GAME ANIMATION - 16/17 SEASON

Meet #4

FIRST® Tech Challenge is designed for 14 to 18 year-old students. Teams of up to 10 students design, build and program their robots to compete in a game of skill and strategy against other teams. The FIRST® Tech Challenge robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and uses a variety of programming languages. Teams including coaches, mentors and volunteers develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles – and then put the robots to the test in annual competitions.

Grades 9-12 (ages 14-18) 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 at tournaments.
  • Earn a place in the World Championship.
  • Qualify for more than $7 million in college scholarships.
