Register your FTC team today with FIRST HQ (http://www.usfirst.org/roboticsprograms/ftc/registration) - we need to count the number of Illinois teams in FTC this year in order to plan the correct number of qualifier tournaments. Please do this asap!
FTC is designed for those who want to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams of up to 15 students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using Java for Android Studio or Java based MIT App Inventor. Teams, including coaches, mentors, and volunteers, are required to develop strategies and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for robot performance as for well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.
