FIRST Tech Challenge

Code, Design, and Compete with Robots!

For grades 7-12: FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.

We are a group of Adventist students, teachers, and mentors - partnered with FIRST - who recognize the importance of STEM education in Adventist schools. We recognize that students involved in our robotics programs learn much more than engineering. They learn marketing, time-management, communication skills, and creative problem solving in a fun and engaging way.
