The FTC Team

By FTC, FTC 2015 No Comments

Hi Everyone,

It’s been a while since we have made an update so there is a lot of fun exciting news to tell you.

First off we now have an FTC Team or First Tech Challenge. To put things simply, they make smaller and more compact robots than the FRC team, but it is very similar to the FRC Team in many ways. We call them the “The MicroScots!” They are team 10209. There season began in September and there first competition ever is on December 12th.

The decision to have an FTC Team was made mainly on the premise that we usually don’t have many exciting things during the FRC Pre-Season. Thus a lot of the team members who join at the beginning of the year lose interest and don’t get the chance to see what robotics is really about. It also has been a great recruiting and learning tool for new members and has deemed to be a great addition to Highland Park’s Robotics Organization.

That is about all we have so far. If you would like to know more about The MicroScots or Team 10209 feel free to contact their parent team (The Automatons) via email at
