Description

While a lot of teams have been around for a number of years, few in the area have been around as long as FTC Team Duct Tape. Founded in 2008, the team has participated in State, Super Regional and World competitions on many occasions.

Our host Daniele is an alumni of Team Duct Tape, and her experiences on the team led her to pursue a career in software engineering. We spoke with Marissa Schiereck, a senior on the team and the team's business lead, about her experiences over the years she has been on the team, how it has affected her and what her plans are after graduation.
