FTC Team Grants

2014-2015 FIRST Tech Challenge Rookie Grant


FIRST Tech Challenge is a dynamic team Sport for the Mind™. Students master STEM skills in a robotics competition environment where they develop a strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. These robots compete in a specific set of game challenges that apply to real world problems. Students grades 7-12 learn valuable life skills, expand and grow as students in STEM, and qualify for over 13.5 million dollars in college scholarships.
