TVP Robotics Application (Grades 9-12)
Dear Students and Parents,

Trivium Preparatory Academy will be starting a Robotics Club for our high schoolers for the 2018-2019 school year! Our team can consist of around 10-15 members. Members will be a mix of 9th through 12th graders. We will compete using a sports model in the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC). FTC teams are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format. Scholars develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles (like keeping an engineering notebook), while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and sharing ideas. Teams also must raise funds, design and market their team brand, and do community outreach for which they can win awards. Participants have access to tens of millions of dollars in college scholarships.

*Meetings will be held Tuesday/Thursday from 3:30 - 6:00pm. Attendance is mandatory.

Club cost: $200 for the year

Students interested must complete the application by August 31st, 2018.

First Tech Challenge teams get to:
• Design, build, and program robots
• Apply real-world math and science concepts
• Develop problem-solving, collaboration, and team-building skills
• Build and become strong leaders
• Understand and practice Gracious Professionalism™
• Cooperate and compete in alliances at tournaments
• Compete for awards on and off the field
• Participate in a tiered competition that culminates at the FIRST Championship
• Qualify for millions of dollars in college scholarships
• Have fun!
When does TVP Robotics happen?
The FIRST® Tech Challenge season starts in May, when teams generally form and registration opens. Season kick-off is in early September when the season’s game is announced. The design and build season runs from September to December. Tournament season varies by region and can begin as early as November and continues through February. State and Regional Tournaments advance teams to Super-Regional Championship Tournaments, and winners earn spots at FIRST Championship at the end of April. There are also many off-season events where teams participate, strategize, hone their skills, learn new technology, meet other teams, and have fun!
