In this hands on session participants will be entrusted with a FIRST Technology Challenge (FTC) Robot and will be Challenged to complete a “Robot in 3 Hours”. They will be assigned teams and will need to design and build a robotic system to put on a pre-built chassis. They will also be trained in how to program any motors attached to that chassis in order to operate their machine in a scaled-down FTC challenge.

Throughout the workshop participants will be exposed to what the FTC competitive robotics season is all about including the concepts of Gracious Professionalism, Design Thinking, teamwork, and block-based coding.
