Moorestown Friends School was the proud host of the FIRST Tech Challenge New Jersey Southern Workshops on Saturday, August 4. Over 130 students and 20 adults from 15 teams attended the workshops (the Northern Workshops will be held on August 18 at New Jersey Institute of Technology).

The workshops offered focused on technical aspects such as Hardware, Design, JAVA/Android Control, and Block Programming as well as team topics including leadership, tournament day expectations, scouting, and much more.

A workshop was also specifically offered to adult attendees.

FIRST Tech Challenge is more than a high school robotics program. It is a community focused on building a better world for tomorrow by engaging high school students in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM).

FIRST Tech Challenge is about teaching students the value of hard work, innovation and creativity. It goes beyond competition by teaching teenagers the importance of working together, sharing ideas, and treating each other with respect and dignity.

Moorestown Friends School Upper School Robotics teams compete in FIRST Tech Challenge competitions during the school year and many other Robotics-related activities occur in and out of the classroom involving students of all ages through the year.
