Welcome to the site of the:
2012 FTC Robot Design World Champions!
...yeah, we're just a little proud of that.
The team is back from their most impressive endeavor yet. After winning the Inspire Award at their qualifying tournament and 2nd Place Inspire Award at the Northern California regionals, the girls won the Robot Design Award at the 2012 FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) World Championships in St. Louis.
The photos above convey the excitement and fun they experienced over a week-long tournament with, and against, 128 other championship teams. Click here to see additional photos from the tournament, more videos, and their unique robot design.

Click on the photo at left to open the girls engineering log. This photo journal documents every step of their robot's development over the course of their 2011-2012 FTC season. It also documented the many events at which they presented and demonstrated their robots, and the tournaments in which they competed (except for Worlds). This would be a valuable resource for new FTC teams to explore to see what a typical FTC season entails.
