The Fembots were started in the 2000-2001 season of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics. The team started off with six seniors and a built-at-the-last-minute robot named Bob. Together, this group of unique young women called themselves the Fembots. Why? Being one of the first all-girl teams participating in FIRST Robotics, they wanted a name that said who they were and what they did; females building robots. Throughout the next thirteen years, our team has overcome numerous difficulties, but through it all we have held strong and have never failed to construct a well-functioning robot.
