Our Story:

We are a rookie FIRST Robotics FTC team from Apple Valley, Minnesota, made up of friends with a combined 26 years of FIRST experience.

Our team name reflects three parts of our team mission:
to build our technology and team skills,
to share what we learn and help build the next generation, and 
to have FUN along the way!

FIRST - For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology - is an organization that promotes teamwork and collaboration amongst aspiring engineers. This program encourages students to explore science and technology through interaction in the community and robotics competitions.

We surpassed our goal!
