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 "Princess Charlie". 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 and 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 member's names in the Fries but as the team changed the name has evolved to proFessional, gRacious, engIneering, tEamwork FIRST.
The 2020-2019 team will consist of the following Ashlyn, Cailyn, Harper, Shelby, and Tempy.
