Team 577, Wreckers Robotics, is a completely student-run FTC team composed of Staples High School students from Westport, Connecticut.
The students design and build robots on their own through a collaborative process in a team member's basement.
The team has a strong tradition of attracting and mentoring new members each year.
The experienced members mentor new team members and those new members will become the next mentors,
thus continuing the legacy of the team and FIRST FTC program.
