This is a picture of the FLL Robot during one of the recent competitions. Kids between 1st-6th grade can participate in FLL (First Lego League) where they will be introduced to robotics and the variations or robot models that can be created. Since the kids are young, these teams do a good job of helping kids understand how robotics are not only fascinations but objects that can be coded or controlled to perform specific or important tasks in the daily life.
The next level after FLL is FTC (First Tech Challenge). Some people may think that FTC and FRC are the same but they are not. FTC is a much smaller team compared to FRC. A typical FTC team has 15 members or less while an FRC team has about 30-50 members. An FTC team has games that are less complicated than FRC due to the number of people on a team. They have a similar season schedule compared with the FRC season schedule.
The next level after FTC is FRC (First Robotics Competition). Some people may think that FTC and FRC are the same but they are not. FTC is a a very large team with 30-50 members. Thus, it is very important that the members do not fight over simple things and to have good team chemistry in order to achieve success. It is also crucial to take care of the large number of kids. An FRC team has games that are much more complicated because of the large number of kids in one team. They have a similar season schedule compared with the FRC season schedule.
