FIRST Tech Challenge at Sidwell Friends

Welcome to the 2012-2013 FIRST Tech Challenge Season!

Sidwell Friends Robotics competes annually in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), where teams of high-school students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.

This year, Sidwell Friends School is again putting out three individual FTC teams to compete in this years challenge, Ring It Up!. In the competition, teams are put into two team alliances and which work together to score points by placing plastic rings on pegs.

Our three competings teams, numbered 4451, 5014, and 5225, will each have their own members and will each be designing, building, and competing with three individual robots. Although the teams have the same numbers as least years teams, some teams have changed numbers and others have welcomed new members.
