Welcome to the 2020-2021 Season for FIRST Technology Challenge. Unfortunately COVID-19 will make this year more challenging than other year but we are here to make this year experience as great as any other year. Sadly the 2020 World Championship was canceled and team 3101 BoomBots from Palm Harbor University High School didn't get a chance to defend their title. But it means they are still the current World Champions.

Due to the challenges of holding live events, FIRST has come up with a method for teams to participate but maintain the necessary social distance to help prevent the spread of the virus. Hopefully, the League Championship and State Championship can happen live but we are planning for alternatives just in case.

The theme for 2020 is Ultimate Goal.

 

The FIRST Tech Challenge season in Florida starts in September and runs through February. Student teams develop robots that can perform the tasks defined in the Challenge, then compete with, and against, other teams in qualifying competitions and a state championship. The purpose of FIRST Tech Challenge is to give high school age students an opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of complex problem solving in a positive and supportive team environment.

Florida teams have had a long history of success at the highest levels. Florida has 6 World Champions.
