Woo-Hoo! Pearadox made it to the district championship, which means the Gearbox Girls did too! Our second GGT of the season was definitely different from all the ones we've ran before. Though we only had a turnout of about 20 girls, it was some of the closest relationships we got to form. From personal stories to valuable advice, every girl came out of the event with something. A cool milestone we achieved in Austin was running the first GGT with our new magazine, STEM Savvy! We got to hand out the magazine and a bunch of shirts to our Austin girls, so shout out to our district champs friends!
Our first Girls Get Together of the season was a blast! With more than half of the girls on our team being freshmen, it was a new experience for many Pearadox members! Nevertheless, we had a great turnout with about 80 girls and women in STEM attending. We were lucky to have so many female volunteers, creating more groups and topics for us to talk about. After a busy day at the Channelview, TX Districts Competition, I'm sure the FRC girls were so happy to unwind with candy and a conversation!
Our 2018 World Champ GGT was such a success—with over 100 excited girls and engineers showing up to network and talk. We got to use our new "Let's talk about ___" posters, which was such a great idea for sparking conversation and allowing girls to get to the groups that would help them the most. What better end to the "Power Up!" season than helping girls Power Up in STEM!
