Today, 10-14-2018 we went to Troy to speak and listen to the presentation of some other amazing robotics teams, involving what they do and why they are girl-powered. We are Girl Powered because we support each other, and encourage others outside of the team. We got the opportunity to listen and talk about what we love about robotics.
Some members of our team got the chance to drive a working robot for the first time because sadly our robot, Charlie 5.0 is not yet up and running. We were also able to interact with robotics teams from both elementary and high school levels. This was an amazing event and a great experience for our team, that will hopefully be followed by a productive meeting.
Being an all girls team, Major Trouble needs to take a leadership position in this one. Lets figure out a time when we can get these signs made, get pictures taken and submit these items. Lets also be an advocate for the Girl Powered program in our area. At Worlds last year, REC Foundation CEO Dan Mantz stated he is working for gender equity in our competition by 2020. That’s a BIG goal, but one we can surely impact, and the sum of all the small efforts locally will make a huge difference.
