Our team began as a rookie team during the 2017-2018 FTC season, Relic Recovery. During that season, we were part of a second place tournament alliance, a fourth place tournament alliance, and were a Motivate award finalist. During the current season, Rover Ruckus, we have become a first place qualifying tournament captain, Rockwell Collins Innovate Award winner, a Control Award winner, as well as a 3rd place Inspire Award winner. Since many of our members plan on going into STEM careers, we wanted to be an all female team. We also want to strongly encourage other girls to pursue careers in STEM, since we find it to be so much fun!
