FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Team 753 was founded in 2005 as a FIRST Vex Challenge (FVC) team.   The team, which is limited to 10 members, is open to Greenville County high school students and middle school students with significant prior robotics experience.

Each year we build an 18"x18"x18" robot beginning in September when we find out what the new game is.   We then compete in one or more state tournaments, hopefully qualifying to take part in the World Championship.

For the 2011-12 season, the new game "Bowled Over!" involves many challenges including scoring racket balls in goals and crates, stacking crates, and rolling a bowling ball into a zone or up a ramp.   Since September, we have worked hard designing, building, and programming a robot to address the challenges of this exciting game.
