The Fe Maidens is an all-girls FIRST FRC robotics team from the Bronx High School of Science in Bronx, NY. Team 2265 was founded in December 2006 in an effort to encourage girls to explore and pursue STEM fields.
A few weeks ago, a member of FRC Team 5800, from Brazil, contacted our team and asked to skype! The 2018 season will be their first season participating in the New York City Regional, and they wanted to know more info about it!We were super excited for the opportunity and arranged a meeting!
When we skyped with them, we answered their questions about the regional, being on an all-girls team, and the weather in New York in April! We also agreed to loan them some batteries during the competition because they can’t ship them over!
We had a lot of fun and we can’t wait to see them during competition!
A few weeks ago, FRC team 4856 reached out to us and asked to tour our shop and learn how to better organize and structure their team! We thought it would be so cool to help out another New York all-girls FRC team, so we arranged a time for them to tour!
At the meeting, we showed them our shop and all our resources. We also let them observe our meeting! If they had any questions, they were able to ask our team leadership! We also showed them how we use Asana and how we contact sponsors!
KLRN is the local subsidy of PBS in San Antonio, Texas and has a group of SciGirls, STEM-loving 8-13-year-old girls who participate in monthly Meet Ups and online screenings. In anticipation of this month’s Meet Up with the Witte Museum to view their newest exhibition, 2theXtreme: Math Alive!, the Fe Maidens are facilitating a screening of the Iron Maidens docuseries for the SciGirls and then answering their questions in an online Q&A session.
We are proud to present the publication of She’s So Boss by Stacy Kravetz.
The book highlights the experiences of ambitious and inventive young women, in addition to providing tips for those seeking to become entrepreneurs. The quotes, pictures, and anecdotes from the Fe Maidens are featured throughout the book, as well as its write up in the Huffington Post, available here.
