FRC 27 - AVR 27A
Team RUSH had an excellent time during the 2024 Kickoff! We got together as a team of students, mentors, alumni, and family to watch the game reveal, and begin brain- storming ideas. The weekend was filled with laughter, unique plans and strategies, and innovative robot designs that began the process of paving the way towards a successful 2024 season!
