What is the FT STEM League?

The soon to be announced FT STEM League is a STEM Robotics Competition program designed to help schools engage students in the evolving field of robotics and its applications. The FT STEM League challenges and activities will promote critical STEM learning, while providing students an in-depth understanding of how these concepts connect to the world around them. Participating in FT STEM challenges is simple and affordable. There is no cost to join, though cooperating schools should acquire designated competition sets to take part in activities. Teachers can register as many teams as they like at no extra charge.

What is the Robotics Competition Starter Set?

 

The Robotics Competition Starter set is exclusive to the FT STEM League program. This set allows you to construct 14 different models and contains everything you need to get your students started building their own robots. Essential components include the TXT Controller, ROBO Pro software, and the Accu Set with a rechargeable battery and charging unit. Get your students excited about STEM learning by offering them the opportunity to program their own robot and compete in robotic competitions.

Through bringing their robotic designs to life, they will delve into core STEM concepts and establish a solid foundation in skills that will benefit them in higher education and possible career fields. The FT STEM League Robotics Competition Starter set builds student confidence in technical skills with a series of fun, engaging fischertechnik models.
