LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI)—The only female robotics team in Indiana competing in FIRST robotics this season hosted their annual reveal on Saturday. The all girl group call themselves the "Girl Gang Robotics." They showcased their robot for competition season. In just seven weeks the Girl Gang Robotics created their robot.
By promoting integrity, acceptance and teamwork the girls hope to represent women in the STEM field. President of Girl Gang Robotics Liz Jones said this will prepare these young girls for their future education and careers. It will also show that girls can do this too.
"I'm hoping more so that we can get guys to realize that girls are just as capable as boys in STEM," said Jones. "Because I don't want these girls to have to leave their team. I want them to feel comfortable with whatever team they are on."
Their first competition will be in Mishawaka, Indiana next week.
