Welcome to FTC

FTC is a FIRST Robotics program for 6th-8th graders. “FIRST Tech Challenge students learn to think like engineers. Teams design, build, and code robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. Robots are built from a reusable platform, powered by Android technology, and can be coded using a variety of levels of Java-based programming.”

Bloomfield Hills has multiple FTC teams across the district and teams are formed at our two middle schools: North Hills and South Hills. It is important for any robotics family (new or returning) to join our email list. We send monthly newsletters, information on how to register for the robotics season, summer camp and more. Be sure to subscribe if you haven’t already and share this page with any BHSD family interested in FTC. Contact us at info@bloomfieldrobotics.com


Team registration is limited and will end June 15. After June 15, students can be put on a waitlist which will close at the end of summer. During the 2024-2025 FIRST season, FIRST® DIVE presented by Qualcomm, teams will use their STEM and collaboration skills to explore life beneath the surface of the ocean. Along the way, we’ll uncover the potential in each of us to strengthen our community and innovate for a better world with healthy oceans. Join us as we explore the future.. Students should be entering grades 6-8 in fall 2023. The cost for FTC is $225.


FTC Coaches will be communicating with each other and Bloomfield Robotics administrators through the app/website Slack. Resources, ideas, and important notices will be shared there. Email us at info@bloomfieldrobotics.com if you are a coach or assistant coach and have not received an invite.
