Team Info

Force Green began its journey as a FIRST Lego League team in 2013 with six team members in 7th grade. Over the years, Force Green moved to the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) competition, with a greater desire for STEM, competing, and succeeding. As old members graduated and new members joined, Force Green expanded, gained more knowledge, and got more frequently involved in the FIRST community. As of today, we are composed of three seniors, five juniors, three sophomores, and one freshman.
