You are probably wondering what FTC is all about. First of all, FTC stands for FIRST Tech Challenge, and FIRST stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Tehcnology. FIRST has more programs than just FTC, including Jr. FIRST Lego Leauge (Jr. FLL), FIRST Lego Leauge (FLL), and FIRST Robotics Challenge (FRC). FTC fits in between FLL and FRC. Jr. FLL and FLL are programs that use legos and are for elementary and middle school kids. FTC and FRC are programs that use raw materials (like sheet metal and plastic) and other metal parts instead of legos. They are programs geared more toward high school kids.
