Who We Are

Supporting future STEM standouts!

Committee Members

We are a non-profit organization with the purpose to develop students’ technical and interpersonal skills through FIRST robot competitions for the SoCal FTC area teams.  Our committee is based on 100% volunteerism. Some of us have full time jobs in companies or schools, some of us are retired, and some of us are students and do not receive payment for organizing and running these events.  If you would like to be part of our planning team, please contact info@socalftc.org.
