FIRST®  Tech Challenge is incredibly rewarding, and a much cheaper alternative for 12 – 18 year olds than FIRST® Robotics Competition.

In order to compete, a team requires the following:

  • Android Moto G(s)
  • TETRIX or Matrix robotics kit
  • 2-15 high school age students
  • At least one dedicated adult mentor

Once the base kit has been purchased (Tetrix/Matrix), the kit can be used year after year.  On top of this cost, there is a small registration cost to compete in Australian tournaments.

There are currently 4 Australian qualifying events for FIRST® Tech Challenge – Brisbane, Sydney, Adelaide & Perth.  Teams who advance from these events will be invited to the national competition held in Brisbane in December.
