What is the ration of boys to girls on your robotics team?

Just curious if we can estimate what percentage of students in FIRST are boys or girls. Ours: 17 boys to 8 girls (closest it's ever been, on our team!)

Our ratio: a bunch of guys to four girls. All of the girls are seniors who are going to graduate this year. So, unless we have newbie girls next year, our team is going to be all guys.

Hmm...

The poll results are a bit disturbing: we have about 75% guys on our team, but ideally it should be 50/50, right?

Hopefully, things will begin to turn around, and we'll get a more even distribution of FIRSTers through the years.

Hey, that'd be an interesting experiment: put up this poll each year, and see if there are any trends. I think that we'll begin to get closer and closer to 50/50 as time passes, and FIRST grows in size, and visibility.

team 25 is somewhat girl deprived. we only have 3 female members. maybe the hawaiian shirts scare them away. or maybe its just the really strange people on our team.

we have only 3 girls. We do however, have alot of women(like engineers and moms) on the team also.

I would just like to take this oppurtunity to also thank all the mom's on moe. Thanks for all your hard work and creative ideas. GO MOE BOOSTERS

Our evolution, since we started doing FIRST:
2000 - 12 men : 0 women
2001 - 5 : 1
2002 - 2 : 1

(proportions, not actual numbers)

So, women participation is getting bigger every year.
