FIRST Tech Challenge is the premier middle school sport where teams of students, guided by mentors, design and build 18” x 18” robots to battle in a FIRST designed game in a contest of ingenuity and innovation.

KPS FIRST Tech Challenge teams are formed in the fall. Teams are formed of 10ish team members in grades 6-8, from all three KPS middle schools. Teams are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. The team is guided by adult coaches and mentors, and students practice engineering principles while realizing the value of grit, innovation, and teamwork.

Red Storm FTC teams participate in 2 qualifier competitions (generally held on Saturdays in November/December). One of these events is the Kentwood FTC Qualifier hosted by Red Storm Robotics at the East Kentwood Freshman Campus. If a team qualifies at one of the qualifiers,  they will participate in the FTC State Competition in mid-December.
