FIRST®  Tech Challenge is incredibly rewarding, and a much cheaper alternative for 14-18 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 2 Australian regional competitions for FIRST® Tech Challenge – one in Brisbane and one in Sydney.  Teams are also invited to the national competition held in Sydney in December.
