Hood River Valley High School (1220 Indian Creek Rd., Hood River) will be hosting a FIRST Tech Challenge Qualifying Tournament on January 27, 2018 with exciting robot action for everyone to watch! Best viewing times are noon to 3pm.
The national FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) program is a mid-level robotics competition that provides an opportunity for 7th – 12th grade students. FTC is an excellent way to experience the power, excitement, and fun of science, technology, engineering, and math and gain insights in the possibility of a technical career. Team members get involved in the design, implementation, and programming of a robot to participate in a challenge in competition and cooperation with robots from other teams.
