We are a group of volunteers dedicated to promoting the FIRST Tech Challenge program and the FIRST philosophy:
"to inspire young people to be science and technology leaders, by engaging them in exciting mentor-based programs that build science, engineering and technology skills, that inspire innovation, and that foster well-rounded life capabilities including self-confidence, communication, and leadership".
It is the goal of FIRST in Michigan to provide the opportunity for youth in our state to progress through each level of the FIRST family of programs, from Jr.FLL through FRC. Through this progression, young people will attain the skills and confidence to successfully step into the next level and beyond.
The Michigan FTC Committee was formed in order to provide information and assistance to promote and encourage growth of the FTC program throughout our state. We strive to deliver enjoyable, quality tournament experiences for our teams, sponsors, volunteers and spectators.
