Who is FIX IT?

We’re FIX IT 3491, a robotics team in the FIRST® Tech Challenge competition. Our team formed in 2009 to compete in the Hot Shots! game. We are based out of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. Our team has been lucky enough to attend competitions all over the world, from China to Australia and the FIRST Championships in St. Louis and Houston. Usually, however, our year takes us to Washington State, British Columbia, and Alberta. Besides being lots of fun, these trips are where we do much of our planning and strategizing for the next competition.

FIX IT is going to the FIRST Championship in Houston Texas
April 17-20, 2024.

The FTC Worlds Kickoff and Welcome starts at 4pm Houston time on Wednesday. A first round of matches will play starting about 5pm CDT. Houston is in the Central time zone so times are two hours ahead of time in BC. FIX IT will play one match on Wednesday.

The schedule of matches will come out Wednesday afternoon after robot inspections are complete.

Team 3491 FIX IT is in the Jemison division. Jemison matches can be viewed on Twitch stream: https://www.twitch.tv/firstinspires_jemison

In the Velocity Vortex season, we’re proud to say that, due to our efforts, British Columbia had its first FTC competition in five years! After hosting FTC info days and several tutorial workshops, we helped start seven rookie teams in our area. In February 2017, every team brought amazing robots to the BC tournament! We plan to grow BC’s FTC community even further.

CENTERSTAGE 2023-24 will be our 15th season in FTC and we can’t wait to get started! Check out the Recent Posts to find out what the team has been up to.
