About FIRST Tech Challenge

Following a sports model, FIRST® Tech Challenge teams (10+ middle and high school students) design, build, program and operate robots of their own design to play a floor game in an alliance format. Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas.
