    First Tech Challenge
    FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is for students in grades 7-12. For FTC, students in teams up to 15 compete in a 12 by 12 foot field with robots they design and build. Students build their robots out of reusable parts and code their robot in Java. Students develop engineering skills while applying concepts from their math, science, and career-technical education courses.
