1 days 2 hours ago | | | Email

Coach Juanita Hicks had invited us to the school for the practice session. She escorted us to the back of the building into an area that resembled a large garage work area.Here were high school students; some reading, some bent over laptops and some, like all teenagers, eating. I was about to be introduced into the world of the First Technology Challenge (FTC). I wasn’t sure what questions to ask so I decided to start with the basics. How the heck did you build this robot and why did you build it? Parents, coaches and members of the team converged to explain everything.
