2019-20 FTC Season Overview
This year’s FTC season was very successful in teaching valuable skills to participating members. All of the 4 teams succeeded in making a competitive robot. The challenges faced through the competition drove students to develop a variety of different skills. These skills, while involving the obvious mechanical skills, also included more professional skills such as writing and presenting. Throughout the season the students all saw major improvements in many of these skills. Unfortunately, none of the teams qualified for state, but the considerable improvements in these skills will help these students for years.
