The mission of the Maryland Tech Invitational (MTI) is to bring together FIRST® Tech Challenge (FTC) teams from the region, nation and around the world who have demonstrated excellence in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) for a high quality competitive tournament.

The MTI is committed to supporting FTC teams' continuation in the program.  This is achieved by offering cash and in-kind awards to be used by teams in the following season.  Since its inception in 2017, the MTI has donated approximately $36,000 to support FTC Teams.  We sincerely thank our Sponsors and Supporters  for making this possible!

The MTI also supports FTC students' exploration of STEM careers by providing a STEM Exposition, an Intern Networking Program  and NEW for 2023 - the Stanley Black & Decker MTI Trade School Scholarship!
