Building the Future: Team 3916

Welcome to our Site!

Our team’s goal is to connect and teach students the fundamentals of building and programming so that they will be have the opportunity to change the growing world of technology.

We are a high school robotics team competing in the FIRST Tech Challenge national competition. We are based in Apex High School, and compete across North Carolina!

What is FTC? (First Tech Challenge)

FTC is designed for students in grades 7-12 to compete head to head, using a sports model. Teams are responsible for designing, building, and programming their robots to compete in an alliance format against other teams.

The robot kit is reusable from year-to-year and is programmed using a variety of languages. Teams, including coaches, mentors and volunteers, are required to develop strategy and build robots based on sound engineering principles.

Awards are given for the competition as well as for community outreach, design, and other real-world accomplishments.
