The “Troopers” are an elite robotics team based in El Paso, Texas. Along with the honor of being the first team in our city to attend VEX Worlds 2015, we have had the privilege of attending Worlds for five years in a row. Our own Team 8787 made finals in the Online Google Girl Powered Story, won the online Game Design Challenge Award, and received the Teamwork Award. Mr. Torres, our mentor, received the Volunteer of the Year Award in 2017. We aim to not only be great competitors in the VEX Robotics Competition but also to share our knowledge of STEM to our local community. It is our pleasure to host robotics workshops at feeder schools, school districts, and local businesses. We have begun hosting Girl Powered events open to girls across the West Texas area. We broke record after record with unprecedented success. In 2016, our first time hosting, we brought in over 350 aspiring young girls, making our event the largest in the nation. The next year, we had 450. By 2018 and 2019, we saw attendance upwards of 700 and broke the world record for largest Girl Powered event. We are thrilled to continue inspiring ever more girls to pursue the STEM field.
