Confidential began as a rookie team during the 2017-2018 FTC season, or their eighth grade year. Kennedy, Lottie, and Katie all went to middle school together, and, while signing up for robotics, met Lily. The team has worked together ever since to create a functional and innovative robot every year. Throughout their three years in FTC, the team has gone to the Minnesota FTC state tournament twice and have won awards for both robot design and programming.
