Students visit a FIRST Tech Challenge Championship Competition
Members of the Optic Nerds visited the FIRST Tech Challenge competition in Oxford, PA, to learn about the next level of robotics the FIRST organization sponsors. The natural progression is from FIRST Lego League into FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) for students ages 12-18. This platform involves more robust building materials from TETRIX and REV robotics and the use of mobile phones as controllers. The team was impressed by the accomplishments of The Gearhounds, pictured, from York Country Day School. After visiting to competition, the graduating members from the Optic Nerds decided they too would like to start a FTC team…in Hanover! Stay tuned for more!
