What is FTC?
FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, manufacture and compete with their robots, raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach to earn specific awards. Participants are also eligible to apply for $80M+ in college scholarships.

Lets face it, in order to do this we need some very expensive equipment that we don’t have yet. For us to cover the costs of the machinery we need your help, our current estimates of just this equipment is close to 7,000 dollars. Currently we are only providing this class at the Agoura Hills location.
Our sessions start in early June and ends in March.
Main sessions will be on Sundays (time tbd)
