Pace University is proud to run the FIRST Tech Challenge program in 46 counties of New York. We have been a FIRST partner since 2004 and are in our sixth year as regional FTC host.

The Empire NY FTC Region consists of these commonly-named geographic areas: Upper and Lower Hudson Valley, Capital Region, Mohawk Valley, Southern Tier, Central New York, Finger Lakes, and Western New York.

In deference to our sustained team growth and the many areas of New York state we serve, we have changed our name from Hudson Valley to Empire NY for the 2014-15 season!

Our neighboring FTC regions are Northern New York and New York City/Long Island.
