The FTC teams are newly created teams participating in the FIRST Tech Challenge, consisting of various middle-schoolers at Beach Middle School and friendly, helpful mentors. They consist of 11617 The Glitch, 11618 The Gremlins, and 11729 The Crash. They all strive to integrate their wonderful, innovative ideas into the local and global FIRST community. As they are quite young, we cannot measure their impact on the FIRST community very well. However, the teams have for sure impacted the local community and those who have directly worked with them.
