In FTC, Marist High School students design, build, and program our robot to compete against other teams in various challenges in the Marist-Atlanta League. Marist School FTC has been competing in the FIRST Robotics Challenge since 2018 and has won numerous awards such as Design, Control, Inspire, Think, and Innovate awards. Our team promotes STEM education and inspires young people to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math careers.

FTC parts and materials set: the metal parts, motors, and sensors. The team also has work time during the Introduction to Robotics and Engineering course taken by FTC team members.

Every year, our team analyzes the challenge when released and works together with other teams to form alliances as part of the challenge. At the beginning of the season, the team also analyzes the rules of the robot game to help them during the season. As the season progresses, they keep a daily log of team progress and practices in their notebook. As part of the robot game, they program a code-based, autonomous section of robot control and a driver-controlled section.

During practices, the team focuses on a variety of different items:

  • Driving Practice

  • Analysis and revision of Robot

  • Regular maintenance

  • Programming

  • Marketing and notebook recording

FTC is open to Marist students in grades 7-12.
