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 girls 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 on June 25th and 26th from 11 AM to 1 PM at Blue River Technology in Sunnyvale (605 W California Ave, Sunnyvale)! 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.
