FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC®) is a mid-level robotics competition for high-school students that helps them learn to design and build robots with both driver and autonomous controlled behavior.  FTC robots are built with the TETRIX® or MATRIX® robot kits. New for the 2015-2016 season, they are controlled by an Android based platform powered by Snapdragon processors. Teams will be using either the ZTE Speed or Motorola Moto G (2nd Edition).

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.
