First Tech Challenge (FTC)
Eden Prairie's FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) program is a robotics program designed for 7th & 8th graders to learn about FIRST robotics. As a team member, your child will design and build a robot, create an engineering notebook, present their design process and robots to judges and have fun competing in competitions. They will also attend outreach events, and a fundraiser. The season begins in early September and may go into April. Meeting times are Tuesdays after school until 5 pm and Saturday mornings 9 am - 12 pm. The program is mentored by the Eden Prairie High School Talon Robotics team, along with adult and parent volunteers. Team formation is dependent on volunteer coach/mentors. If we are unable to identify a mentor for the team, all participants will be refunded. Families will be required to transport their student(s) to and from each tournament, which take place throughout the Twin Cities metro area. Questions can be directed to Gail Silewski - FTC Coordinator firstname.lastname@example.orgQuestions about FIRST program like FTC? Visit www.usfirst.org or www.hightechkids.org
