FTC Robotics Team Demonstrate their Robots at Rotary


Rich Job is a mentor for the Ankeny High School "FIRST Tech Competition" Robotics team.  On May 20th, he had his team bring their robots to Rotary and talk about this project.


FTC is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of languages. Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for the competition as well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.
