Re: Girls on Teams

We have four girls on our team. One is the head of marketing with another one helping, another is the head of programming, and the last one is one of the two captains we have.

I am really disappointed to hear this,because I believe that females should be leaders in this type field as much as men are; I believe that they should be as "scary" as the guys.

But I cannot completely say that women are not ding their part, because our team is proof of it.
Out of the 50 members in our team 19 of them are girls, including myself. And I am very proud to say that they do , if not more, the same amount of work as the boys on our team.
We have girls that have jobs from making the Scrap book to girls that take care of all the electronics! The girls on our team have learned that nothing is impossible because they are women and because society has made things how they are. They might be women on the outside, but in the inside they are as alike as a man.

Perhaps in the initial quote regarding being intimidated, it may be partially that and also, it may be hard for members (old and new) to take ownership of their contributions to the team.
After the new members are made to feel welcome and offered opportunities to learn, train, be a part of the team, then it is up to each of them to step up and accept the challenge of being on the team in whatever capacity they are assigned or they choose. By stepping up, they are each taking ownership. Some are timid or just don't 'get it' for a year or so. Those require patience. Some 'get it' right away and are able to work through their shyness and the intimidation factor. That is why it is so important that veteran members, both students and mentors, support the process of building a team.

Re: Girls on Teams

I think about 22 of our 48 member team are girls, and they are fairly dispersed across building the robot, our design/autodesk team, and our PR team.

None of them are on our programming team, but that's small with only ~5 members, so... Yeah. Hehe.

Re: Girls on Teams

My school didn't use to have an FRC team, but my friend and I (two girls) started the one. Our team is about 50/50 and most of the girls actually do hands on things. Several of our girls are better with tools than guys are.

Re: Girls on Teams

We have six girls out of about 35 members. Five of them machine, 1 is the documentarian/lead scout and the other does electronics!

I partake in the electrical work.

I wish we had girls in all other aspects of our team.


But we all have lots of spirit for our team, taking into consideration that the boys dont have as much energy as us girls!

GO GIRLS!!

Hehehe

Re: Girls on Teams

We have 2 girls on our 15ish member team. One of them is a code monkey who does a bit of electronics on the side. The other is our art genius. I taught her to solder on Saturday, and now she's in charge of soldering everything. (She's very good at it.)

Re: Girls on Teams

Our team has about 45 members with 9 of them being girls. Presently, I am a Co-Team leader and get quite involved in our mechanical aspects as well. I do the awards submissions as well... but all the girls on my team are versatile.

Re: Girls on Teams

On our team, there are 4 girls (including myself), 16 total. I'm the VP, another is pretty much the head of the electronics team, the two others are pnumatics and extrenius. Last year, I was the only one, but that was because we wern't able to advertise for a while. Neat question.

Re: Girls on Teams

we have 2 leaders, but have equal power and responsibility and normally on of them is a girl, ever since i joined we have had girl shop leaders. Except this year, there is no one shop leader. The returning members just tell the new guys what to do and make them our lackies =P.
