THE

MATRIX

What is FTC Robotics?

Matrix is way more than building robots. 

FTC teams are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format.

Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and working as a team, all while having FUN!

TARGET AGE GROUP

7TH-9TH GRADE
