We are a FIRST®  Tech Challenge Team and our team name is the F.R.E.N.C.H. F.R.I.E.S. We are an all-girl - Girl Scout team in Central Florida.

So, you wonder why our Team Name is "F.R.E.N.C.H. F.R.I.E.S.",  well it is a result of naming our first robot. We now have a new robot and her name is "Ghostalynn". So our first robot's name was "French Fries Charlie" which was changed to "Prince Charles", but the team wanted to keep the "French Fries" part of the name. That is when we picked "F.R.E.N.C.H. F.R.I.E.S. as our team name because we love to eat them. Following is the meaning of our name: Friendly, Reliable, Energetic, Nerdy, Classy, and Heroes. We first mapped the team members' names in the Fries but as the team changed the name has evolved to proFessional, gRacious, engIneering, tEamwork FIRST.

The 2024-2025 team will consist of the following Ayla, Eliana, Elle, Kenzie,  Renee, and Vanessa.


We are proud to announce that we participated in the final 4 matches and we were the 4 team captain. Also, we were awarded 3rd Place for the "Think" Award,  and 2nd Place Control Award again for the 2023-2024 season.
