This past weekend, Ramona Rampage kicked off their 2019 competition season at Foshay Learning Center in Los Angeles. Team members were able to view this year’s challenge of Space Innovation at this kickoff ceremony along with all of the other teams participating in the FIRST Robotics competition.
The kickoff ceremony is the start of the six week build competition for this year’s robotics team. The weekend was spent strategizing on how to tackle this year’s challenge. Thanks to Mrs. Aulikki Flagan and the other team mentors, participants have the support and guidance needed to make this season a success!
Innovation, education, and professionalism guide our team! Award-winning Ramona Rampage, Team 1159, is one of very few all girls’ FIRST Robotics teams. With roots going back to the legendary garage of our moderator’s home in 2002, more than 80 team members now build our robots in two dedicated classrooms on campus after school and on weekends.
