Nah, that's our school's dance team. They had this one thing where they managed to incorporate pulling off their pants into their dance. And right after we presented our 2006 and 2007 robots, too. They looked about 766 times more stupid than if they had done the pants thing without our robots. Not that they didn't look stupid already.

Just how you guys probably dont like being made fun of, i'm sure the dance team feels the same way. I'm sure they also work hard to do what they are passionate about. Just because you dont like them doesnt mean you have to make fun of them. Treat others like you want to be treated...

I did not make fun of anyone, I merely called them normal like everyone else.

Re: Girls on Teams

Guys, this quote is from the very first post of this thread and it is the purpose of this thread.
Quote:
Since we are an all-girls team, we have lately been interested in the roles of girls on co-ed teams. Some members of my team were doing a survey of the number of girls on teams and their jobs at the Buckeye Regional. We were very disappointed to discover that on some teams, girls were given only the job of cheerleader, or publicist. Continuing that, just please give the number of girls on your team, along w/ the number of students on your team, and what the girls usually do. Thanks a lot!
Let's get back to that.

Re: Girls on Teams

Here's a "girls on teams" anecdote for you. One of Exothermic Robotics' FTC teams has three girls and two boys on it. When the discussion of "who's going to drive the 'bot?" came up, one of the boys said, "I'll drive and <otherboy> will operate the game controls." One of the girls -- a friendly, short, peaceful girl -- said, "Nope. <Othergirl> is driving and I'm operating the arm." And that's the way it was. They were the top-seeded robot after qualifying and could easily have led their #1 alliance to winning the event if it weren't for a tragic mistake I won't go into.

Anyway. They were great drivers, went to the semifinals, and won the Innovate award.

I'm not making fun of any dance team, I'm saying not to. I love my schools dance team, and just like sometimes our robotics team is bad at our school, the dance team can be. Everyone has their days, it's just not always nice to point it out.

Re: Girls on Teams

I'm sorry. If it means anything, I regret that post. I posted it hastily and without thinking.

To go back to the original thread topic, today at Silicon Valley we had one girl programming (our one and only programmer ... assisted by awesome parent/teacher, but still, GO TAMARA! ) and three girls doing mechanical improvements/fix-ups and scouting. Lots and lots of scouting. One of the parents was also scouting matches- who happened to be a team member's awesome mom. Yes, we value mothers and fathers equally. As for drive team, driver is male, copilot/box op (same programmer mentioned above) is female, "Robocoach" is male, coach is female student. So far. Things may switch around during the next two days of competition. Total today in the Pits we had two boys and three girls, studentwise. We'll have more tomorrow and Saturday, but meanwhile- anyone else have different male-female ratios during Build Season vs. Competition?

Re: Girls on Teams

There's about 20 girls on our team of 40ish students. 8 of the girls do Media Marketing (with me), one does animation and the other 10 do manufacturing. The leader of the design team is a girl, our Product Integration Manager is a girl, and a lot of the girls who normally do Media stuff float around and end up helping out in the shop for a few days. Our operator and our robocoach are girls too.

But I agree with some of the other posts about it not mattering much WHO does a job as long as SOMEONE does. It's important to encourage integration but if the girls on your team would rather do PR stuff, then more power to them.

This is a good reiteration of the previous post ( nullifying the last 20 or so), and as before I have to agree.

I love how the girl says "no" and that's how it is. This thread is supposed to be about equality but it's just as bad here, there were just more girls than guys in this situation.

For what it's worth, if the boys had said, "So, let's work out a way to pick our drivers" rather than "the boys will drive" things might have gone differently...
