Growing up, I was intimidated by math and science. A couple years ago, a sophomore, Audrey, received a UA+Ed grant to start a First Robotics Team at UAHS. She filled the team with a majority of female students and had a female advisor. Some of these girls had no background in robotics, but they joined the team and each played an important role. They made it to the national competition their first year. Looking back, I wish that I had had more opportunities in STEM education, especially as a female.
