The girls on the Walton Robotics Team were determined to create a supportive community of girls in FIRST as they saw challenges as well as hope for female involvement in STEM. The result of their hard work was a program called GirlsFIRST, which is a sustained series of events designed to empower female students to pursue careers in STEM and to change the way culture views girls as “more suited” to feminine tasks. Walton Robotics continues to expand this program every year, reaching more girls and building a network with female leaders in STEM industries. The initiative hosts events featuring speakers, panels, small group mentoring, robot scrimmages, engineering activities, and outreach development serving as invaluable opportunities to become involved in a community of girls in STEM and FIRST. The program is for all middle school and high school girls, even those who are not on a FIRST team.
