Six to ten students/FTC team participate in the fall competition where robots must fit within an 18 inch bounding box. The robots are built using the Lego Mindstorm and Lego Tetrix kits. Veteran students show new team members what they've learned throughout the previous year(s). New students are trained and get hands on experience before working on the Winter 120 lb robots. Students are involved with project based learning, hands on experience building a robot, electronics, programming and most importantly -- team work.
