Welcome to the Affiliate Partner website for FTC for the State of Connecticut!

The FIRST Tech Challenge is more than a high school robotics program.  It is a community focused on building a better world for tomorrow by engaging high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

FTC is about teaching students the value of hard work, innovation and creativity.  It goes beyond competition by teaching teenagers the importance of working together, sharing ideas and treating each other with respect and dignity.

Is FTC a robotics program? Yes, but it is so much more.
