We are a diverse group of girls bursting with curiosity and creativity, which has happened to manifest itself in the form of robots. This past year with the generous support and guidance of mentors and sponsors we were given the chance to build three friends: Platypus, Cygnus, and Severus who competed with us in numerous local competitions. There, we met and played matches with similarly inspired teams from all around California. With each experience, girls gained the confidence and knowledge to go further and build more complex parts for their next robots. Our robots evolved through the season to meet the increasing challenge.
2015-2016 is the fourth year of the Space Cookies VEX team. The Space Cookies team, a collaboration between Girl Scouts and NASA, started in 2006 with the creation of the FRC team, a high school-level group. The VEX team was added in 2012 as a way to include more girls, including those in 7th and 8th grades.
