It derives its name from the practice of Rubber Duck Debugging and all members are given a rubber duck of their own. The initial 750 ducks were a generous donation from the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics.
Students are inducted as members during CS 140 Introduction to Programming. The first class was inducted on 4 February 2013. (In the first year, upperclassmen were also inducted in other classes.)
