We are the Armored Artemises 16008, a FTC Robotics Team.
We are a gender minority team made up of middle school and high school students in Glastonbury Connecticut.
Our mission is to introduce youth to STEM through fun, hands-on experiences such as FIRST. As a gender-minority team, we prioritize promoting FIRST and STEM not only among girls but among non-binary and transgender youth as well. We believe in creating a culture of inclusion.
FIRST is a program that introduces students to engineering, robotics, and programming for all ages.
Each year, the robot game and challenges are based off a certain theme. For this year, the theme is energy.
