IndyRAGE is a unique event as it ties the FIRST competition together with an event focused on girls. Female motivational speakers and an open discussion led by women in STEM fields will give girls the opportunity to ask questions and get motivated about engineering and other STEM fields. Girls are also encouraged to try new roles at this event.

 

Pit crews are encouraged to be all-female. We recognize this as a significant challenge to teams, so this is not a requirement. Teams are encouraged to recruit new mentors for this event. This year we would like to challenge teams to bring along girls that have an interest in joining their team so they can experience a FIRST robotics off season competition.

 

Volunteers – Our goal is 100% female volunteers in every role. In some cases, due to the experience required, this may not be possible. In those specific cases, we will have an experienced volunteer provide coaching and training for a female interested in learning those roles.

 

The rules are simple- You must have an all-girl drive team (including coach).

We encourage you to bring your whole team, so they can cheer you on to success!

There will be judged awards.

Our mission is to empower girls to try something new during this event.

We are still in the planning stage for this year’s event so please follow us on twitter
