Season Outline & Time Commitments
The FTC season runs August 1-December 2023
At the middle school level, teams typically meet twice a week at the high school team’s shop at Franklin & Square Lake. The coach assigned to your student’s team will be in contact to plan out meeting days. Generally, meetings are in the evening since coaches are parent volunteers.
Teams will design, build, and program an 18”X18”X18” robot that will perform a real-world application.They will document the engineering process, get hands-on programming experience, develop problem solving, organizational, and teamwork skills. Teams will compete at 2 local competitions, usually around November and could qualify for the Michigan State Championship in mid-December.
