Our Vision

Our vision is dedicated to enriching the education of our members through building, programming and community outreach. Our team is focused on learning technical skills, communication skills, leadership skills, and teamwork. We are proud to be a completely student-run team.
We look forward to working together as a team, exploring new skills and ideas and use creativity and persistence to solve problems. We respect each other and believe in teamwork, as working together in a team is what makes us stronger and more successful.

Imagination is more important than knowledge as it is imagination that takes the first step towards creativity. Never give up on what you really want to do. Failing is a very important part of learning as only then can you appreciate the real value of success.

-Albert Einstein

Dream big and never give up

-Mukta Mehra


Our team has been running since 2018. We have gone to FTC world championships in our rookie year, a feat few rookie teams can boast of 🙂 We were also Virginia state champions that same year, as alliance captains.
