FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) is for high school age youth to create remote controlled robots using the LEGO MINDSTORMS intelligent brick and TETRIX parts. Four teams compete on the same playing field. The teams form two alliances for the tournament match. An alliance partner in one match could be your opponent in the next match.

 

In 2009, we started our  FTC team FIX IT.
