FTC 7314 was created to provide a robotics opportunity for 7th and 8th grade students in Chester County and especially (but not exclusively) in the Downingtown area. The team is a feeder for FRC Team 1640.

All students successfully participating in FTC will be eligible (but not required) to step up to the FRC program upon entering High School.


The team will meet at the CCIU TCHS-Brandywine on:

  • Monday evenings 6:00-9:00pm; and
  • Wednesday evenings 6:00-9:00pm (Software focus)
  • Saturday afternoons 2:00-5:00pm

Any deviations from this schedule will be clearly communicated.

See the FTC Calendar and current events for more details. We also have set up a Google calendar.
