FIRST Israel will run a pilot FTC program for 20 teams in Israel starting next season and my FRC team might mentor one team in our school.
I have some questions regarding the program of the robot:
- I’ve read that because of Qualcomm all teams now have to use java, is that true? If not what are the options? (Our FRC team is using LabVIEW so…)
- In Israel the students in FTC will be from 8th to 10th grade only, what is the best way of teaching students with no background how to program in java?
- How much time is needed in order to reach a good level for a good FTC robot? Are there any simulators which we can use to learn the robot’s libraries?
