In our programs we use, primarily, the robots used in U S First programs and competitions. usfirst.org
Over the last fifteen years, U S First has started model programs for high school, middle school and elementary school age groups. We have participated in these programs for eight years and have designed our local programs to be complementary.
Because the U S First programs are seasonal (First Lego League – Fall and First Tech Challenge – Fall and Winter), we are able to use the same equipment in Spring and Summer programs in cooperation with Chattanooga State Technical Community College, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, and the Creative Discovery Museum.
Our robots are Lego RCX, Lego NXT, VEX, and the new FTC version of Lego NXT.
