FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC) is for students of high school age to create autonomous and remote controlled robots to play a game. In each match, four teams compete on the same playing field, with the teams forming alliances for the tournament matches.
Our team's name is 3491 FIX IT. We are part of the Victoria Robotics Club.* Until this year we were the only FTC team in Victoria, Vancouver Island—or even British Colombia. Since we’ve had no local competition until now, if we wanted to be part of FIRST®, we did (and still do) a lot of travelling! ____ *This year (2016–17) we are mentoring several new local teams, so this will change in the years to come
In the 2014/15 season, we:
were part of the Winning Alliance at the Washington State Championship
Captained the Winning Alliance at the Canadian Championship.
