Blu Cru #6417

The Blu Cru is a team of 14 high schoolers from Montgomery County which competes in the First Tech Challenge.

What is FTC?

"It’s way more than building robots. FIRST Tech Challenge teams (up to 15 team members, grades 7-12) are challenged to design, build, program, and operate robots to compete in a head-to-head challenge in an alliance format.

Guided by adult coaches and mentors, students develop STEM skills and practice engineering principles, while realizing the value of hard work, innovation, and working as a team."

Team Mission Statement

Our mission as the Post 1010 Blu Cru is to get the next generation of achievers, innovators and risk-takers to engage in science, engineering and technology through the power of FTC.

Together, we will face our fears, build our bot, and hopefully conquer the competition.

All we have to do is try.

Thank you FIRST!

We love FTC because of the way it inspires us to lead in the fields of science and engineering and fuels our passion for thinking outside the box.

FIRST has our gratitude for being the bond between us all.

an outlet for our creativity

FTC is a creative outlet for our team and an escape from the demanding school environment; it is through FTC we regain our passion for learning and school.

a community of like-minded friends

During the season we are able to gain confidence in our communication and leadership. Although our team may have started off as just strangers, our team has built bonds with each other through our love of the FIRST Tech Challenge, and these bonds will last a lifetime.
