Nova Labs Robotics is passionate about supporting the pipeline of female leadership in STEM. Four of the 2014 teams are led by women. Young women from the nationally recognized Herndon High School FTC team mentor the teams, providing strong role models.
Among the 100 kids registered in our program, 20% are girls and their involvement is highly encouraged. Girls on teams change team dynamics in a positive way. Not only are girls represented on several teams this year, one of the rookie FLL teams, Girls on Fire, is composed entirely of girls. The girls on the teams are acquiring valuable engineering and leadership experience.
