The Girl Powered Online Challenge, sponsored by Google, gives VEX Competition teams a way to demonstrate how they are fostering a positive Girl Powered experience. Through this Online Challenge, students get the opportunity to outline the steps they are taking to make their competitive robotics experience reflective of the diverse world we live in, and the one we want to leave behind. Everyone in our community has first-hand experience of how exciting it is to be involved with STEM, and we look forward to sharing your stories with the rest of the world to illuminate how you are advancing the Girl Powered mission through your involvement in competitive robotics.
Do you have a compelling and engaging story about how your team has incorporated Girl Powered into your program? Or do you have a story to share that illustrates how diversity of perspective changes your robot design, your team chemistry, and even your ability to succeed?
“Women’s voices are being heard now more than ever. More women are needed in STEM fields so that their voices can be heard there too. That’s why my work with the Girl Powered Online Challenge has been so inspiring. Every Online Challenge gives students the opportunity to showcase their work and inspire other girls to get involved in robotics and STEM. These girls will be our future STEM leaders, poised to help change the world,” said Nancy McIntyre, Regional Support Manager.
We encourage you to participate in our Girl Powered Online Challenge, where you’ll have the opportunity to share your stories for a chance to win prizes, showcase your work, and earn a chance to compete at VEX Worlds.
This season marks the second year that the Girl Powered Online Challenge has been available. We want compelling, engaging stories that give us insight into how you’ve taken the Girl Powered initiative and incorporated it into your experience on a VEX IQ Challenge or VEX Robotics Competition team.
Be sure to submit your entry before the January 10, 2018 deadline. If you have any questions about the Girl Powered Online Challenge, please visit the VEX Forum. Explore the Girl Powered Online Challenge requirements, eligibility and prizes at:
