Following a sports model, FIRST® Tech Challenge teams (10+ members) 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. Participants have access to tens of millions of dollars in college scholarships.
In the 2019 FIRST® Tech Challenge season, teams will explore STEM concepts through a challenging, and out-of-this-world space-themed game. Prepare to rouse a ruckus and take your team on an adventure when the new season launches this September.
