First Tech Challenge
First Tech Challenge (FTC) is a FIRST robotics program for kids in 7th to 12th grade. This program challenges students to design, build, and program robots in a 10 week period to compete in a floor-based game. This competition creates a low-cost and accessible opportunity for students to explore the fields of STEM.
The Iron Patriots have recently started our own FTC team, team 16942, the Minutemen, which is starting its first competition season this year! We have started 8 FTC teams so far, and mentored 8, for a total of 12 teams impacted.
