Girl Powered: In Her Words Storybook Challenge
In marking the kickoff of Girl Powered, an initiative to increase the representation of girls on robotics teams, the REC Foundation would like to invite girls on VEX IQ Challenge and VEX Robotics Competition teams to create a story focused on their path in designing, programming, and building a robot or one aspect of their team’s development over the season. This is a unique opportunity for your team to share what’s most important to you, how you overcame particular challenges during the season, and, most of all, what it's like to participate in robotics!
Lulu was new to the world of VEX robotics. She loved the engineering design process and working on a team. There was only ONE problem... Lulu was very shy! How would she ever have the courage to speak up? Join Lulu as she discovers her GIRL POWER and finds that her ideas are not only relevant, but valuable. Her confidence grows as she learns more about building and programming. Lulu's ultimate challenge comes when she is asked a tough question during interviews that she was completely unprepared for. Will Lulu rise to the challenge...?
In this poetry-styled storybook, I explain my journey in robotics as a girl, and how I went from being someone who wasn't taken seriously, to being the captain of one of the strongest teams in my city.
This is a story about how we developed a concept for a robotic leg brace to help special needs kids. We made this concept the focus of our research project and presentation. Our story describes how we came up with the idea, researched the robot’s design, and worked as a team.
We have chosen our own robotics adventure this year in 3rd grade. Our Warriorbots 113 F Purple team has Girl Power! Read our book to find out how we have Girl Power. Choose your own adventure as you read about our robotics program. You'll even hear about the time we fixed a boy's robot. The paparazzi (local news station) even followed us around for our 2-hour robotics practice. We were even featured on a news segment and in our community newspaper. Choose your own adventure to hear about how we won the Excellence Award and for some tips on how you can promote Girl Power...
This flipbook follows the story of a single girl’s experience in robotics and her curiosity in STEAM. She later joins alongside other girls to finally succeed after countless hours of work.
We participate and host service events to try to reach 50/50 by 2020, which refers to equal participation from both genders in STEAM by the year 2020. We hope to empower girls to be strong and not feel intimidated by STEAM and encourage every single girl to join so we can explore more fields, and open more roads for our entire world.
Team 200C's storybook is mainly written in prose, and it parodies THHGTTG, as well as other pop-culture happenings. We hope you hitch on for this ride!
One Thursday, nearly 1662 years after Hypatia of Alexandria, and 202 years after Ada Lovelace, a woman sitting on her own in a small cafe in Toronto suddenly realised why she felt empty all the time. She regretted giving in to the peer pressure of her friends, and listening to her parents when they said “Science is not a respectable pursuit for...Read more
