FTC Competition Zero

Yesterday, I went to my first FTC competition and it was a blast.

According to the FIRST Inspires website, FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is…

… way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (up to 15 team 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.

The team of which I am a part is competing in their second year. They did very well last year, and I’ve enjoyed learning from the team. I was recruited to help with the programming, and I am enjoying learning from them very much.
