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


Last year, Red Wing High School Robotics has demonstrated our robot in a few different places. We presented at Red Wing High School and Falk Auto Body. We hope to do a lot more outreach before the season is over!

First Motion

Here's a video of our robot from last year where we witnessed First Motion of the Drive Base! Congratulations to the whole team!
