FRC Application forms:
FTC7314 is open to students in grades 7-12 (September), with a focus on 7-9. Again, no prior robotics experience is needed and the necessary skills will be taught. The team builds a smaller, less complex robot than FRC and with an open build season starting 12-September. The team typically operates 2 days/wk after 12-September (Saturday 2:00-5:00pm and one evening 6:00-9:00pm); one day/wk (Saturday 2:00-4:00pm) following its final competition (January/February – but could extend to end of April). The team builds good robots, but insofar as it competes with high school teams it has not hitherto gone far in competition. It is a great training venue however. 9th grade students as a rule move up to the FRC program. Program cost is $225/student/yr.
