FTC South African Qualifying Tournament 2018

The FTC South African Qualifying tournament will be taking place on the 3rd of March 2018 in the SAP Auditorium of  the Sci-Bono Discovery Centre in Johannesburg.  Anyone with an interest in the STEM development of kids is invited to come spectate the mayhem of FTC.

We believe that this is one of the best programs whereby school children get exposed to engineering principles, software programming and CAD design.

You can meet with Johannes de Vries in the auditorium at 10:00 where after you can experience one of the judging sessions followed by the opening ceremony and the robot matches.
