Welcome to Pennsylvania FIRST Tech Challenge
 

It’s way more than building robots
Following a sports model, FIRST Tech Challenge teams design, build, program, and operate robots of their own design to play a floor game in an alliance format. 

Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. 

Participants have access to tens of millions of dollars in college scholarships.
FIRST Tech Challenge
Teams of middle and high school-aged students are challenged to design, build, and program a robot to play a floor game against other teams’ creations.
