Hi! We are VEX team 7405M, Millburn Mercury, from New Jersey. Both the REC Foundation and Girl Powered’s ambition to encourage equal participation of young women and men in competitive robotics is a foundational aspect our team. Girl Powered, to our team, means having both female and male ideas equally represented and fostering a supportive and empowering community for all members, regardless of background or orientation, to feel comfortable sharing their ideas and contributing while facing challenges as a group, and we hope to show that through our essay submision and story.
