Fall Robotics Teams: FIRST Tech Challenge

BadgerBOTS FIRST Tech Challenge teams have begun working on the 2017-2018 Challenge: FIRST Relic Recovery. Check out the Game Animation Video below:

FIRST Tech Challenge teams (10+ members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Participants call it “the hardest fun you’ll ever have!”

Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and can be programmed using a variety of languages, including Java.
