What is Robotics?

Welcome to the FIRST Tech Challenge

The varsity Sport for the Mind, FTC combines the excitement of sport with the rigors of science and technology. Under strict rules, limited resources and time limits, teams of 10 students or less are challenged to raise funds, design a team "brand," hone teamwork skills and then build and program robots to perform prescribed tasks against a field of competitors.  It’s as close to "real-world engineering" as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.

Students get to:

  • Learn from professional engineers
  • Build and compete with a robot they design 
  • Learn and use sophisticated software and hardware
  • Compete and cooperate in alliances and tournaments
  • Earn a place in the World Championship
  • Qualify for over $19 million in college scholarships 

News and Progress Updates


Red wing High School Robotics has presented a lot in Red Wing. We presented at Burnside Elementary, Twin Bluff Middle School, and Red Wing Manufactures Assosiation. At the schools, our team and Tower View High School was showing the aspects of robotics to the kids to let them become aware of this fairly new club at the High School.
