  • First Robotics Competition (FRC) is the program for high school students (Grades 9-12)
    and features the largest and most elaborate robots.
  • First Tech Challenge (FTC) will also be on display. FTC is another program for older
    students that use a smaller robot and covers grades 7-12.

    to build robots and solve challenges. FLL is intended for grades 5-9 and incorporates real
    world projects with the robot design challenge.
  • FLL Jr. is the program for the youngest students. Participants in grades 1-5 work
    together to develop solutions to real world problems and use Legos to demonstrate
    their solution.
