We're an FTC robotics team hailing from Kent Place School, in Summit, New Jersey. Founded in 2015, we're on a mission to inspire girls in STEM fields and promote robotics in our community.

What's FIRST? 

FIRST, or For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, was founded in 1989 to promote an interest in STEM among students. They run a series of robotics and engineering competitions for kindergarten through 12th grade, cultivating a passion for computer programming and engineering.


Hosted by FIRST, FTC is a robotics competition where students in grades 7-12 come together to design, build, and program a robot. The season starts with a kick-off in September, with competitions from November to March.

Every year, FTC announces a new theme for the robotics competitions. With each theme come new objectives and guidelines, making each year's robot completely different. The theme for the 2020-2021 season is Ultimate Goal


All of our team members are part of NJ STEM Girls. The student-led organization helps support girls on New Jersey FTC robotics teams--members lead presentations, help each other with aspects of the project, and attend mixers.
