The FIRST Tech Challenge is more than a robotics program. We are as a focused on building a better world for tomorrow by engaging students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).
FTC is about teaching students the value of hard work, innovation and creativity. It goes beyond competition by teaching teenagers the importance of working together, sharing ideas and treating each other with respect and dignity.
We are proud to offer robotics as an extracurricular activity at Horizon Science Academy Cincinnati. Students in 6 and upper grades can join to advanced robot design program. The team competes against other schools just like athletic teams do. There are different levels of competition: regional, state, national, and international. Team members design, build, and program their own robots.
