All FTC teams are welcome to apply. MTI invitations will be awarded based robot performance during the Rover Ruckus season. This will be determined primarily by the level reached by a team in the robot game during the 2018/2019 season. The level of achievement at a State Championship will be given a higher value than the level at a qualifier.
New this year - special consideration will be given to teams who submit a video of their robot in action. The video must be three minutes or less in length and it should show both autonomous and teleop performance.
It is the intent of the MTI that the robots competing are primarily student built and programmed. This is in keeping with the goals of FTC. See FTC Mentor Manual, page 13.
Applications will be accepted starting January 7, 2019 and ending March 23, 2019.
MTI invitations will be sent beginning March 28, 2019.
