FTC Teams are comprised of about 10 students (no more than 15) ages 12-18 (Grades 7-12) along with 2 or 3 mentors who use a modular robotics platform to conceive, build, and compete in a FIRST-designed game. They design, build, and program robots, get hands-on programming and rapid-prototyping experience, apply real-world math and science concepts, document the engineering process, and develop problem-solving, organizational, and team-building skills. Teams come from schools, home schools, after-school groups, churches, civic organizations, and neighborhood groups.
