According to the FIRST website, “FTC is designed for those who want to compete head-to-head, using a sports model. Teams of up to 10 students are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams. The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of languages. Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles. Awards are given for the competition as for well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.”

      In the fall, Parkway South Robotics divided up into three teams; the red team 406, the white team 407, and the blue team 408, to play the FTC game. Each team had a different design to play this years game, ‘Bowled Over.’ Even though each team is self sufficient, students helped other teams when their expertise was needed.
