We are excited to announce that applications and volunteer sign-ups for the 2023 Goonettes Invitational girls’ event are now open!!

We would love to have you join us for Charged Up competition and our unique Hands on Hallway, with hands-on demos & networking opportunities with STEM businesses, programs, and universities.

Drive teams must consist of all girls (excluding drive coach) and, while all genders are welcome to support, girls are encouraged to take the lead in the pits as well!

Teams may share team members if there are not enough girls on your team to field a drive team.

If teams combine/share members should they register under one Team number or apply seperately and leave a note on the multiple applications that they go together?

If teams combine/share members should they register under one Team number or apply seperately and leave a note on the multiple applications that they go together?

Hello - great question!

  • If teams will be bringing one robot (while combining/sharing team members), please apply under one team number (whichever matches the robot you will bring).

  • If teams will be bringing two robots (while combining/sharing team members), please apply under two team numbers (one for each robot).

Let us know if this does not answer your question.

In general, if teams need any help coordinating the sharing of team member (e.g. if you do not have enough girls on your team to field a drive team), let us know - we are happy to help!

Is load in going to be Saturday or Sunday morning?

Hello!

Below is our tentative schedule. You can load in on either day!

Do y’all need extra setup hands? TorqueNados can probably send over a couple students early on Saturday. At a minimum a portion of the team will be there Saturday at 3.

More hands would definitely be helpful! Field will arrive at 3p and load in for teams begins at 3p, but we will already begin setting up at noon.

Thank you!

I’ll see what we can do. We are having morning practice to test out new wheels and to get acquainted with new students. So we might send over a few people after lunch.
