Middle School FTC Pilot Program

FIRST in Michigan is piloting FTC for middle schools!  To jump-start the formation of middle school level FTC teams across the state, a very generous grant-based incentive package has been put together that will cover the team's registration fee, two competitions and an enhanced kit of parts.

The teams are now forming.  The game was announced last Saturday and can be found here:  There will be one competition on the west side of the state and one on the east side of the state. All teams will participate in both. These events are just in the planning stages but will likely take place in late November and early December.  A limited number of spots are available.  Contact Gail Alpert at to get with the program!
