We are an all girl group of middle schoolers and high schoolers. We represent grades 7-9 and 5 different schools: Anthony, Breck, Southwest, Washburn and Lake Harriet. We are in our second season of robotics for FTC ( FIRST Tech Challenge). Although some people on our team have done FLL (First Lego League) before, for some last year was a new experience. Last season we started by building a simple push bot just to get used to this level of robotics, and ended up using it for the game last year. This year we are experimenting with a new drive train, and working on how we are going to improve and learn from last year.
Thank you to our sponsors: High Tech Kids, Tools4Teens, Colle McVoy, Actuonix, Arconic, and FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), Tim Dirr, and Lynnhurst and Southwest for space .

Thank you to Tim Dirr for our safety glasses, Colle McVoy for donating a computer, and Lynnhurst and Southwest for giving us space to work and practice.
