Having fallen hard for robotics at the beginning of high school, Christy answered her call to leadership in her robotics club as a Junior. She took on the mantle of authority with the earnest determination that came with being the only female captain in the club. But taking charge as a girl isn’t as simple as it seems at first glance, and the intensifying troubles Christy encounters seem like a dark curse brought on by her sex. Her decisions fail, the robot refuses to work, and her authority is challenged. As these seemingly insurmountable obstacles threaten to overwhelm her, will Christy have the tenacity to hold on to the position she has always dreamed of? Follow Christy as she and her team discover what it means to be a Girl Powered team, and as she learns to appreciate the diversity and talents of her team members.
