FIRST TECH CHALLENGE, popularly known as FTC, is an exciting and innovative robotics competition for students in the age group of 12yrs. to 18yrs. FTC imbibes life skills amongst students besides learning technical aspects of robotics.
21st century dynamics demands certain skills to be acquired by today’s students. It’s important that students understand life skills like leadership, team work, logical & analytical skills, social responsibility, financial responsibility, Financial budgeting, etc. In the 6th year of FTC in India, we have resolved to involve Educators, Parents, Corporates, Government Departments, Professionals, Engineers, Non Engineers and everyone who desires the best environment for students which would help them to shape their future.
Come, one and all, let’s come together and shape the future citizens of India who are seeking knowledge for fulfilling their curiosity. It’s the responsibility of everyone of one of us to fulfill this curiosity and provide them the answers for their questions which may seem irrelevant or out of context for the adult minds.
FIRST Tech Challenge teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have!”
Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and can be programmed using a variety of languages, including Java.
Teams also must raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach for which they can win awards. Participants have access to tens of millions of dollars in college scholarships. Each season concludes with Super-Regional Championships and an exciting FIRST Championship
