About Florida FIRST
The Florida FIRST Tech Challenge season starts in September and runs through February. Student teams develop robots that can perform the tasks defined in the Challenge, then compete with, and against, other teams in their League Meets. The League Meets are relatively local to a group of teams with approximately one scrimmage and two to four meets. This followed by a League Championship usually in the late January time frame. The top teams from each League advance to the State Championship usually held in February. The top teams from state then qualify for the World Championship which is usually held in February.
The purpose of FIRST Tech Challenge is to give high school and middle school age students an opportunity to experience the fun and excitement of complex problem solving in a positive and supportive team environment.
