Today we are talking with Lillian, who is our documentation expert on FTC #7444 Sisters of the Motherboard and training to take over our social media accounts next year. We are looking at the FIRST philosophy of #MoreThanRobots and how her role on the team reflects this important idea.
Why did you join robotics?
At first I joined robotics to understand the magic of STEM, but discovered I was more interested in the marketing side of our team. This includes posting on social media and reaching out to other communities to educate them about STEM, and share the progress of the growth of our team.
What is your current role on the team?
My current role on the team is creating the engineering notebook which consists of entries related to changes made to the robot. I collect entries every time we meet and edit them. Eventually the entries are printed and made into a notebook. I am shadowing our current social media lead to be ready to take over our accounts next year when she graduates.
What made this role attractive to you?
I have always been interested in the importance of social media for businesses and the steps needed to have a successful social media page. I wanted to connect with other robotics teams not from a builder or coder perspective, but from an outreach perspective and learn how they share their team and STEM to other people. I was interested in helping create the engineering notebook for the season because I enjoyed the idea of creating a book that involves all of our successes and changes to the robot.
Why do you think what you do is important to the team?
I think of myself as an organizer of the team. Which is a very important role to keep the team on track. With as many events that occur and jobs needed to be done, I am useful to keep together information and tasks completed.
What would you say to someone who thinks that there isn’t a place for them in robotics?
There is always a place for someone in robotics! With so many important roles needed to have a successful team like being a coder, builder, or being involved with social media, we are always open to new members trying everything out. Through trial and error you can find your interest and have fun in robotics!

As a freshman student at Salem Academy, located in North Carolina, I have had the opportunity to be a part of our RoboLearners program. The RoboLearners program is an introduction to everything robotics. Through this program I have gotten to work with CAD (computer aided design), building, coding and even driving the robot. In the past, I have had some experience with coding and robotics, however I have never been a part of an FTC team. The RoboLearners program is designed to ease students into the realm of FIRST Robotics, and give them a basic overview of the many roles that team members hold.
Two RoboLearners at their First State Competition!
The beginning of the year started with 100 days of CAD by OnShape. This consisted of tutorial style videos that guided students through the basics of CAD and designing various parts. While at first this seemed extremely daunting, we only did about 20 of the 100 days, specifically ones that were most applicable to FIRST. At the start, I had little experience with CAD. Throughout this first unit, I was able to learn the basics of CAD and gained new knowledge regarding CAD. It was great to learn something new about a skillset I previously had little experience working with, and then applying this skillset to robotics.
Learning to CAD
Being a part of the RoboLearners program, I was able to move on to the next unit: building. In RoboLearners I was able to work in a team of students and build an FTC pushbot for this year's challenge. We worked together, often navigating through various challenges, and were able to build working robots. Through this valuable building experience, I found a love for building. I showed that I was progressing fast through this challenge, and was given the opportunity to be a part of the building team for 7444 Sisters of the Motherboard, at Salem Academy.
Working Together to Build a Pushbot
After competition season, I am now learning the basics of coding in FTC Sim. Starting with block code, I have been learning how to code the robot to move, use color sensors, distance sensors, and more. The next step is working on phasing out of block code and beginning to code in Java. After this, we will begin dropping code onto the FTC Pushbots that we built earlier in the year. Then, we will be able to drive the FTC Pushbots in a challenge that veteran team members have designed. This challenge will mimic past First Tech Challenge games, and allow the RoboLearners to practice navigating a robotics match.
Success While Coding!
The RoboLearners program has been a great way to learn the foundation of robotics and FIRST Tech Challenge. I have loved learning how to build and code, and even the basics to 3D Computer Aided Design. I know the skills I have learned in this program will be incredibly helpful to not only robotics, but the rest of my academic career. Through RoboLearners I have learned valuable life skills such as teamwork, collaboration, problem solving, and brainstorming. I can’t wait to see what else I learn being a part of Salem Academy RoboLearners and FIRST robotics.

By the Marlbots 3526, a high school team of girls and other gender minorities based in Los Angeles, CA.
Contrary to the experience of many people in this world, Dr. Lee Mirsky did not grow up in a household dominated by specific gender roles. She is a sister to a younger brother, LGBTQ+ twins and is married to a transgender man; her father worked from home, while her mother went to work at a hospital. When going to a McDonald’s drive through with her mother, her family was asked if they would like a “boy toy” or “girl toy” with their happy meals. Instead of subscribing to such a binary and gender-specific tradition, her mother would play dumb, saying things like “I don't know what ‘girl toy’ or ‘boy toy’ is.” Dr. Mirsky was aware, of course, that other ways of living existed, but such occurrences were the norm in her family.
Dr. Mirsky fell in love with science in an 11th grade physics class, encouraged by the help of a remarkable teacher at her school. From there, she went on to major in Physics and Environmental Analysis & Policy in college, but discovered her love of Materials Science (a combination of physics, chemistry and engineering) while at college. She decided to earn her PhD in Materials Science, and began to tutor physics throughout her graduate years, realizing her love of teaching physics. In 2016, during her last year in her PhD program, Dr. Mirsky joined the Marlborough faculty part time to teach Physics, and in 2017, after receiving her PhD, she joined the faculty full time.
At Marlborough, the robotics program was beginning to expand in such a way that the illustrious Mr. Witman required extra help, leading him to turn to Dr. Mirsky. At first, Dr. Mirsky was hesitant to join the program, but after going to a robotics meet, she realized how much fun the robotics world is. By 2018, Dr. Mirsky was Mr. Witman’s second hand; she was assisting after school, and also helped to teach the middle school robotics classes, on top of teaching physics.
Although STEM is known as a fairly male-dominated field, Dr. Mirsky feels “very lucky” in that she’s been fortunate enough to have had positive experiences throughout her STEM career. Of course, like so many, she has dealt with inflated male egos: she once overheard a male peer discussing his “discovery”, which he had “discovered” in a research article that he simply modified. Nonetheless, Dr. Mirsky has never faced the typical disrespect so many women have faced in the STEM world at the hands of overzealous men.
Dr. Mirsky attributes her positive experiences to great teachers, some luck, other areas of privilege that she has, but also her upbringing. Dr. Mirsky was never taught to actively see gender, and even in the face of obnoxious males during her school years, she never felt held back by her male peers. So, when asked about the difference between the number of male coaches and female coaches at robotics meets, Dr. Mirsky said she never really noticed it until she began to think about it.
It’s an interesting phenomenon - seeing gender is so ingrained in our society, but when a person is not taught to actively see gender roles, and constantly spend time and energy thinking about gender, their experience differs from the rest. Dr. Mirsky was never taught to see herself as overwhelmingly “female” in a STEM world dominated by “males,” and thus never felt the same effect of discrimination others are prone to.
Dr. Mirsky is currently the “Engineering and Entrepreneurship Program Head” and “Associate Director of the Frank and Eileen Accelerator Program” and teaches AP Physics and Engineering and Invention for Impact at Marlborough School. With the increase of Dr. Mirsky’s responsibilities, she is no longer able to assist with robotics, but greatly treasures her time with the teams.

“There are always going to be people who think I am not as capable because I am a woman, and that’s okay, that's not my problem.” - Aislinn O’Dwyer, Team 4786 Nicolet FEAR alumni
For Team 4786 Nicolet FEAR, founding student member and current mentor Aislinn O’Dwyer continues to inspire team members and young women to pursue their passions in the fields of engineering and STEM. O’Dwyer always had an interest in science when she was a child, but was not able to pursue it until she got to high school. After taking classes her freshman year, she realized that engineering is something that she wanted to do. Joining the team as a founding member in December of 2012 for the 2013 FRC season, she was deeply encapsulated by FIRST and returned to mentor the team for the 2018 FRC Power Up season.
“FIRST gave me a lot of exposure to the different types of engineering there are and the different aspects of design.” For O’Dwyer, FIRST gave her a space to explore what she didn’t have the chance to before, giving a more indepth look at the engineering field. This team, with the help of FIRST, is able to give all members the opportunity to see different aspects of engineering: electrical, mechanical, programming, and also the communication side of a business. Nicolet FEAR works to create an environment where everyone is involved and encouraged to work together.O’Dwyer said, “it taught me a lot about how not everything is going to work the first time and that’s not a problem, that’s how engineering works. Not everything is going to be perfect the first time and it’s about the think, make, improve process.”
Even through the hour and a half commute from Madison, O’Dwyer continues to mentor for the team year after year. Aislinn said, “I really like Nicolet FEAR. It is so accessible to so many people. You don’t have to be rich, it doesn’t cost thousands and thousands of dollars to join the team. It's a place for everyone no matter their background is able to come in and understand and enjoy the experience of engineering, or graphics, or communications, or any part of the real world.”
O’Dwyer currently works as a senior engineer at National Electrostatics Corporation located in Middleton, Wisconsin just outside of Madison, Wisconsin. National Electrostatics Corporation makes particle accelerators. These particle accelerators are used for medical and astronomical research as well as different experiments in all areas of science. As a senior engineer, O’Dwyer works on mechanical engineering for various projects. She works with physicists to ensure things are able to be made, and they follow the goals for the physicists. Ais also works on installing particle accelerators.
Through her success in her career, O’Dwyer has also run into some adversity being a woman in STEM and engineering. “Being a woman in STEM and engineering for one is not always taken as seriously as their male counterparts. It’s improving, I’ve seen lots of improvement the longer I have been in the field, but it is still not perfect. There are always going to be people who think I am not as capable because I am a woman, and that’s okay, that's not my problem. That is their problem. The big thing about it is when other people think I can’t do something, I just go and prove them wrong!” said O’Dwyer.
Since she was a child, O’Dwyer’s biggest inspiration is her mother. As a pharmacist, she was a huge role model to Aislinn growing up and helped show her that women really can do anything they put their minds to. Aislinn is a big believer in inspiring young women and people to go into STEM. “It is important to have voices to stand up for women and minorities who say you can do this and have people who can back you and have you believe it and that you can do this. It is so important to feel like you are supported and can do anything.”

FRC team 4118, Roaring Riptide has always been a safe space for me. It is where I made my first highschool friends, and the buildspace is where I go when I need cheering up. My teammates and I work to support each other's ideas, projects, concerns and interests. My team is full of people that want nothing more than for their teammates to grow, regardless of background or lifestyle, but that isn’t an atmosphere reached effortlessly. It is something that needs to be encouraged and cultivated in order to grow.
A female teammate recalls, “My first year on the team, two of my friends tried to work with the robot aspects of the team, but the technical lead roles were dominated by males and made it hard for them to get their voices heard on anything technical. This often ended up kinda forcing them to step away from the technical aspect of the team.” When talking to Alumni, they confirmed that it was a combination of strategy and determination to create and maintain the culture we have today. It was their concerns that led us to working towards a family-like atmosphere on our team.
A very big part of that is promoting female leadership in our team. Our largest move to do so was to create an all girls FTC team in 2020. The idea was to create a feeder team for Riptide. Girls could have a dedicated space to learn and gain confidence with engineering. When they felt ready, if they wished to, they could move to working on Riptide. We saw immediate results, with our team's leadership being majority female during the next FTC season, and remaining so up until this season, even as we incorporated all genders into our FTC team. We look forward to encouraging more girls in STEM and building our legacy as a diverse and dynamic team of engineers.

Why is Imagery Important?
As a FIRST participant, I’m sure we’ve all heard the term “more than robots” plenty of times. It can relate to less technical ideas, like how we grow throughout our journey in the program either as individuals or teams. Along with that, though, it can also refer to what teams need in order to function that doesn’t relate directly to building a robot. FIRST cultivates many non-technical skills, like those needed for awards, documentation, business, or outreach, and one thing needed for all of those is good imagery.
For a robotics team, imagery means consistent colors, symbols, and mottos. It’s your teams brand. For beginner teams, choosing identifying colors may sound like the least of your concerns, but it's a big first step in getting your team into the spotlight. It's how other teams, potential sponsors, and even judges recognize you. Imagery provides stronger internal and external team connections, a more inspiring experience for team members, sponsorships, consideration for awards, stand presence, invitations to opportunities, and being more recognizable at outreach events.
So, how do you get started on building your team's image?
FRC team 4118 provides a guide to creating a team's brand that effectively represents whatever message your team has decided to promote. The guide discusses everything from colors to presence in your team's pit, using our team's own experiences and trials as we settled into our own image and brand. It can be found through this link.
We hope that this resource helps any teams looking for help. Both new teams initially starting out and old teams looking to rebrand have resources to find with us and with other teams. We hope to help you through your journey of making your team as recognizable as possible!"

The number of girls in STEM is increasing, and we need to continue this trend!
Our team started 3 years ago with only 2 girls on the team, Ava and myself. Over the years we have devoted our team to youth STEM education, and we especially love seeing younger girls get opportunities to experience and learn about Science Technology, Engineering, and Math.
This year, Ava and I are proud to report that we now have 8 girls on our team! That number is still low—our goal is to have 50% representation, but we are excited to see an increased interest in STEM among our female peers. We attribute this increase to our focus on having girls in STEM be active and visible in the community. Like I said before, our team does a lot of wonderful STEM education, holding many classes, workshops, and camps for kids. Last season we did a total of 1,049 hours of outreach in the community and made 1,858 impacting moments face-to-face with kids interested in STEM! In order to be as welcoming as possible to future FIRST Ladies, many of the events we created we made sure were women-led, or had a woman-focused atmosphere. For example, we participated in several Girl Scout events in our community, led Girl Scout meetings, worked with Prairie STEM and JuSTEMagine to have a STEM Sisters virtual event, and made sure every event our team planned involved women in the planning stage. We also made sure to work with women-owned businesses in our area to get their input, help, and advice to continue reaching out to future girl leaders.
One event I would like to particularly focus on though is the STEM Sisters virtual event. At this event we had over 20 girls register from all over the country from Ohio to California to Virginia! We had women STEM experts and STEM college students present about their experiences being women in STEM and the challenges and accomplishments that they have conquered and achieved. We also did fun STEM activities from a curriculum that we created ourselves.
We wanted to know that we truly made an impact on these girls though, and to do that, we looked, of course, to science. We framed the STEM Sisters event with an experiment of our own: “Draw a scientist.” We were inspired by a study from the National Science Teaching Association. Between 19601980, The National Science Teaching Association asked 5,000 kids to draw “a scientist.” The study, published in 1983, showed that less than 1 percent--only 28 of the 5,000 pictures drawn--were of women. Even the girls drew men when they were asked to imagine a generic scientist. Our goal was to change this. At the beginning of the STEM Sisters event, we asked all of the girls to draw a scientist. Out of the 23 girls, only one drew a girl scientist. When we had them think about why they drew who they drew, it was eye-opening for all of the girls and also for us. Throughout the event, we made sure to fix this by empowering the girls and showing them all that they are capable of. At the end of the event, when we asked the girls to once again “Draw a scientist,” all 23 girls drew a girl scientist- and most drew themselves! It was amazing to see them believe in themselves as real STEMinsists!
The number of girls in STEM is increasing, and we need to continue this trend! As of right now, 13.7% of all engineers are women, while the majority, 86.3%, are men. It would benefit the world if there were more women in STEM. Girls can not only improve the world’s economy but also give STEM a new and valuable perspective. On top of that, the work that we do to introduce more girls to STEM now is not just in the present but also paves the way for future generations of girls to explore, learn and grow in STEM. One event can make a difference—we proved that—so our challenge to everyone is to get out there and keep empowering girls and making a difference, one girl at a time!

“Do you have any pads?” a girl asked one of our mentors through sobs. “I don’t have money for the machine.”
She was from a team from outside the U.S. — a country that does not require payment for menstrual products in public restrooms — and was panicking because she had no coins. As luck would have it, she had run into a mentor of an all-girls team that keeps tampons and pads in their pit. Although the lack of menstrual products may have been addressed in the moment, it opened our eyes to menstrual equity.
Consider a typical restroom. It wouldn't be acceptable to have toilet paper available only 20% of the time or expect people to pay for it. Why then do 80% of restrooms lack menstrual products or have empty or broken coin-operated dispensers?
Menstrual Equity refers to the affordability, accessibility and safety of menstrual products and is about making sure that people have the means, support, and choices to take care of their menstrual health.
m.e. FIRST, our initiative to ensure menstrual equity in FIRST, is a continuation of our 2021 Innovation Challenge project. While the idea was sparked by our members’ experiences at FIRST competitions and sporting events, our research showed clearly that this is a much larger issue. To have a fully equitable and participatory society, menstrual products must be safe and affordable to all who need them. This is the driving philosophy behind m.e. FIRST.
We began distributing pads and tampons at local FRC events. We found overwhelming support for our mission and set our sights on competitions beyond our region, developing an ambassador program for teams that were equally passionate about equity. We created a toolkit that provides an overview of menstrual equity, calculators for how many products to bring, templates for social media, event flyers, and signage for the products placed in restrooms. Ambassador teams can also order laptop stickers and buttons at no cost.
m.e. FIRST launched last season and 75 ambassador teams supported nearly 100 competitions around the world, providing thousands of free period products. We continued these efforts at the FIRST Championship and were able to cover the entire event of nearly 800 teams.
This year, we are excited to be partnering with Aunt Flow, a company committed to universal access to menstrual products, to design a pad and tampon bundle that teams can easily order to cover their FRC competitions at a significant discount. Learn more about m.e. FIRST and sign up to be an ambassador team at frc.spacecookies.org/menstrual-equity.

We are FTC team 13735, the PiRates (πΔs) from Pitt County, NC! We strive to get out in the community to spread the word of FIRST and empower new generations to pursue STEM interests, focusing on traditionally underrepresented groups in the field. This past season (2021-2022), we pursued many outreach initiatives, and we would love to share some of our successes and hopefully inspire some teams looking for ways they can go out into the community!
Inspiring Girls in STEM: We are passionate to support girls in STEM. We helped host Doyenne Inspiration, an off-season FRC all-girl and nonbinary student competition in 2019 and 2021, where we competed with 27 teams across NC and VA, reaching over 270 girls.
This was our third year as NC’s Ambassador for #FIRSTLikeAGirl, where we shared resources to promote the program at competitions and events in the community. Additionally, this was our first year as a FIRST Ladies regional partner!
During the season, we hosted monthly meetings with the Boys and Girls Clubs for our program called Get the GIST (Girls in Science and Technology). We connected 12 girls with engineering college students for monthly talks and ended with a quick STEM activity. We aimed to get more diverse speakers so the kids were able to see themselves in them.
Promoting FIRST: We developed a monthly program at the NC Museum of Natural Sciences called Get in Gear. We taught 156 elementary kids and their parents' concepts in STEM while introducing them to the FIRST core values. Each month, we would focus on a different science topic, creating activities that centered around the theme (ex: electricity, chemistry).
One of our main outreach events that we run over the summer is hosting FIRST Camps with our sister team, FRC 2642 The Pitt Pirates. This three-week program focuses on FLL Explore, FLL Challenge, and FTC engineering and programming concepts. We used WeDo and Spike Prime kits, along with other fun STEM builds that we call our “STEM Treasures.” For the past few years, a few of the kids who’ve participated in the last week of the camp (the FTC-centric week) have joined the team!
Out in the Community: You can find us around the community showcasing the FTC program with elementary students. One example is Freeboot Friday festivals - an event held every Friday before an ECU home football game. We have a booth out there, and allow the kids to drive cardboard robots while providing more information about FIRST programs. We also attended two parades this season where we reached over 5,000 people.
We also do many robot showcases and STEM activities with local churches. One favorite is Robox Sumo, where the kids design cardboard robots to push each other out of a ring. The competitions get pretty exciting, and it’s always fun to see the creative ideas they come up with.
Advocacy: We participated in Student Association for STEM Advocacy (SSA) National Advocacy Conference in June 2021, where we video conferenced State legislators about ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) funds and how they will benefit students participating in FIRST programs.
We also talked in person and sent letters to our local legislators, asking for their support for the NC After-School Robotics Grant. We were excited to hear that the state budget passed funding $1.2M for FIRST teams in December 2021.
Fundraising: One way we help the community is through Walks for Causes. We continue to raise funds for St. Jude, the American Cancer Society, and the Humane Society totaling over $3,900 over the past two years.
Social Media: Our marketing team works hard to promote the team brand across platforms like Twitter, TikTok, and Instagram, which allows us to connect with other FIRST teams. Follow us @piratesftc on Instagram!
This year has been a bit crazy, but we had a blast competing at tournaments and giving back to the community through our robotics outreach! If you would like to reach out and potentially collaborate with us, please DM us on Instagram. We would love to meet with other FIRST Ladies teams!

G-Force Robotics FRC Team #9008 is an all-girl, community-based FIRST Robotics Competition Team located in Clayton, North Carolina. We at G-Force Robotics have partnered with the Clayton library and Oak Ridge Computer Science Girls (ORCSGirls) out of Tennessee to offer free hybrid Girls Teach Tech classes as a part of our #FIRSTLikeAGirl and #GForceGirlsSOAR initiatives. In the simplest form, we offer these classes as a way to give back to our community. These courses are open to 5th-8th grade girls and this year our classes teach them everything from simple coding to 3D printing to the fundamentals of artificial intelligence. We started doing these Girls Teach Tech classes as a way to inspire younger girls and teach them about STEM.
We are so lucky to have ORCSGirls as a partner to help us with our Girls Teach Tech (GTT) classes. After reaching out to Thomas Proffen, the founder of ORCSGirls, he agreed to help us set up and deliver our classes. So when we do these classes, the ORCSGirls half is online, and then the Girls Teach Tech half is in-person at the Clayton library. Our GTT classes fall under one of our main outreach initiatives, G-Force Girls SOAR. SOAR stands for Success through Outreach, Advocacy and Robotics. We do many things under this initiative in addition to GTT, such as a STEM literacy project, the President’s Volunteer Service Award program, and participation in the National STEM Advocacy Conference.
We believe it is important to start a pipeline now to encourage and inspire young girls to be interested in STEM, which is why we promote it so much. The majority of STEM fields are dominated by men, and women often have to face numerous challenges when pursuing a career in this field. Some of these challenges include not being valued as equal by male co-workers, or people believing that women can’t be as smart or accomplish as much as men can. This is why there is a need to make sure that we, as high school girls, mentor younger girls to inspire and nurture their interests in STEM. We believe creating an all-girl team and hosting these classes is imperative because it's a great opportunity for young girls to get to know other girls with similar STEM interests, and also for us involved in G-Force Robotics, to build bridges for them to follow in our footsteps.
Usually during our GTT classes we have around 15-20 middle school girls that we are teaching in-person at the library, along with about 20-25 students that are virtual. During our classes we will generally start off with icebreakers and introduce the members of the team who are helping with the class. We then move into the first thirty minutes of the class where Dr. Proffen explains the background of what we are learning on a Zoom call. After the background is given, we move on from the Zoom call and break into the in-person section of the activity. This is when our team members volunteering in the library help with hands-on teaching and assist with any questions the students have while completing the activity. These activities can range from designing a necklace with 3-D printing software (BlocksCad3D) that is later printed out and given to them, to making their own virtual reality video game. Additionally, the software these young ladies are being exposed to has many practical uses in the real world which can give them a great head start as they make their way into various STEM fields. The classes in total are approximately two hours, and every class we have hosted with ORCSGirls has been a massive success. We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with ORCSGirls and host these classes for such a great cause, and more importantly, to inspire and encourage the next generation of women in STEM!
