Meet Our Team

What has been your favorite team memory so far?



Fresno. After being SO bummed out that we couldn’t compete we went to an amusement park-like place. It was really fun and I felt like I got closer to everyone. It was a good day despite its terrible start. OR Cal games, our first and only "competition". It was really fun to get to experience a competition, and being alliance captains/making it to semis being a rookie team was very inspiring. OR Build season last year was also so much fun. Being able to spend time working on a collective goal was fun. There was so much to do and working together was so much fun. I was really looking forward to competing.

I had a lot of fun working on the Innovation Challenge this year, and despite everything being remote and online, we were able to design something to help one's physical and mental health. It was great working towards designing something, that enhances a bike into a bike trainer. I think the pandemic really taught me how much can be done, especially virtually!​


I had lots of fun being a part of the innovation challenge during covid, because it helped me realize that anything is possible, regardless of the circumstances. The bloopers in our demonstration video, and the constant reruns and practices for the judging was also lots of fun.


My favorite team memory is from our most recent “competition”. Even though it got canceled, we still found ways to show off our robot, but most importantly, get closer as a team. I felt like that was when I was able to bond a lot more with some teammates.
