Nuts & Bolts team members Kaitlyn Darnall and Tia Pritchard troubleshoot their robot with the guidance of their coaches James Gill and Sean Blackburn during regional competition in Grand Island.

FIRST TECH is more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Participants call it "the hardest fun you'll ever have!"

Guided by adult Coaches and Mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas.
