Walton Robotics is happy to finally announce Project: R2D2! To fuel the STEM and FIRST pipeline, we started two new FTC teams at our feeder middle schools, Dickerson and Dodgen. All of the aspects of the team will be run by our team, including mentoring and providing a build space.
For the 2022-2023 year, Dickerson and Dodgen will have their own FTC teams: Dickerson will be FTC Team 21183, and Dodgen will be FTC Team 21184. Each team will have 10-12 students from their school.
What is FTC?
FTC (FIRST Tech Challenge) is the second-highest level of robotics competition in FIRST. For students in grades 7-12, members have the fall semester to build, program, and test 18” x 18” robots to earn the most points in the new game each year. In the fall and the spring, teams of 10-12 students compete at the local, state, and international levels.
