FIRST Tech Challenge   

FIRST Tech Challenge - NY Excelsior Region (NY EXC)

MVCC is honored to be the FIRST Tech Challenge Partner Organization for robotics teams in the NY Excelsior Region (NY EXC). Every FIRST tournament is an incredibly educational and inspiring experience and we look forward to working with all of our teams each season!  

Important: Please Choose and Register below for NO MORE THAN TWO Remote Qualifiers.

Teams may possibly compete in up to *3 Qualifiers, BUT until we assess registration numbers and demand, teams can only be waitlisted for a *3rd Qualifier choice, through a soon-to-be emailed Google Form link in email with Subject: “NY EXC FTC Qualifier Registration, INVOICE & Waitlist”.

All teams are constantly building and rebuilding/reprogramming, so teams should not hesitate to participate in at least one tournament, since robots and other great inventions are never completely "ready"!

These events are closed to non-NY Excelsior teams so that we may serve our many NY EXC regional teams during this time when our team numbers are uncertain. (Please contact us if this applies: Exceptions may be made for Canadian teams nearby or other teams who may not have many tournament opportunities.)

See all the important Tournament Registration Procedures through the “Teams Register Here” button at the top of our FIRST@MVCC Events webpage.

Onward and Upward!

Check out the non-credit courses and programs for all ages and interests that our department offers.  Many are online!
