More Info

We would like to first introduce First Tech Challenge. First Tech Challenge is a year-long international competitive program where a team of 2 to 15 high school students is given the opportunity to program and build robots and participate in a competition against other teams. Each team is guided by at least 2 coaches and mentors and 1 sponsor. In First Team Challenge, students create a unique robot which goes a course First Team Challenge creates. Depending on each season, the robot has different requirements that they have to meet. We would be creating, designing, and running a robot as a team. As a team, we would control the robot for it to do what we intend it to do. We compete against other teams constantly throughout the season. The robot that we create will be present along with the components’ robots. They would have to complete the task that is given as fast as possible while other teams do the same thing as well. By learning to program, planning and strategizing the virtual robot to participate, students will compete within their class, grade, school, district, and state to win stages and progress to the finals.

With that being said, we would like to mention the benefits our team would receive. We believe having the opportunity to participate in this program will help tremendously. Starting a competitive robotics team will be a good start to improve our computer science class. Students will have the chance to apply real-world math and science concepts when building and designing unique robots. Students will become more experienced when it comes to coding in computer languages and constructing a robot or mechanical objects. Those who participate in First Tech Challenge will develop their skills in the field of STEM. Students who participate in the First Tech Challenge will also understand the importance and practice Gracious Professionalism. The First Tech Challenge will open up opportunities to high school students who are interested in careers or majors related to computer science and engineering. When students apply for college or university, they are qualified for scholarships. It has even been proven that over 86% of the students have more interest in school and over 87% became more interested in attending college. More importantly, we will learn the importance of team collaboration.

We would very much appreciate all the help we can get. Thank you for your time, I hope you consider helping out!
