The FIRST Tech Challenge
Welcome to 2012-2013 FTC Season
The FIRST Tech Challenge is an intermediate robotics competition, designed for 14- to 18-year-old high-school students, where teams of up to 10 students working alongside mentors apply real-world math and science concepts to solve an annual challenge. Students compete and cooperate in team alliances at sport-type tournaments that are ultimately helping to create the next generation of technology leaders. Through their involvement with FIRST, students discover the rewards of collaboration, develop a deeper understanding of innovation and engineering, and learn the importance of Gracious Professionalism™. To participate in the 2012-2013 FTC season, you must first register your team into FIRST’s Team Information Management System (TIMS): http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc/content.aspx?id=750
