How to Join

Girls in grades 6 through 12 are eligible to join the Space Cookies VEX team. No prior experience is necessary, but all skill and experience levels are welcome. Our troop is girl-led with many leadership roles. In addition to robotics, our troop also offers various opportunities, including web design, photography, and videography.

Visiting the Lab & Joining the Team

Every year we host an Open House for the girls who are interested in joining the team, followed by three consecutive lab visits. After the lab visits, girls will be able to get an invitation to join the team if so desired. Once the new members accept the invitation and complete their paperwork they can start attending troop meetings.

Virtual Workshops

The Open House was held virtually through Zoom on June 12th and June 13th. If you weren’t able to attend or attended and want to learn more about Space Cookies, you can attend the three upcoming workshops which are Design, Mechanical, and Programming. Attendance at these workshops are mandatory if you want to join our troop for the upcoming season. If you want to join, please fill out the workshop sign-up form below.
