How it all began
The Fembots were started in the 2000-2001 season of the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition. The team started off with six seniors, physics teacher Mr. Glasser, 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 17 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, while also growing into the 27-members, award-winning team today.
