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.
