What is FTC?
FTC is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head. Teams are responsible for designing and building more complex robots with advanced programming techniques to compete in an alliance format against other teams.
How to Register
Teams can register for the West Virginia State Championship event starting September 18th at noon EST.
What about the Robot?
Teams construct a robot using a variety of pieces from various manufacturers. Click here for a large but not all-inclusive list of legal and illegal parts.
