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.
For the year of 2022, we will be holding our Open House soon and we would like to invite you to come learn what the troop is all about! The dates are to be determined, but at our Open House, girls will have the opportunity to meet our troop and try out robotics-related activities and parents will be able to attend an informational Q&A session for further questions about our robotics troop. To be notified when details of the open house are set, please fill out the google form linked below.
After the Open House, we will be hosting three workshops: Design, Mechanical, and Programming. Attendance at these workshops are mandatory if you want to join our troop for the upcoming season. The dates and specifics of these workshops will be updated after our Open House. Until then, if you have any questions, feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
