STEM FOCUSED MAGNET PROGRAM
Energy's all-girls VEX TEM (3674G) won the Judges Award at the USTEM VEX Robotics tournament held at Waltrip High School on Saturday, December 16, 2023. The Judges Award goes to the team deserving recognition from the Judges for special accomplishments. The team finished with a 3-3 record in a field of 28 teams.
It has been a goal for Mr. Hamilton, the VEX Robotics sponsor, to form an all-girls VEX Robotics team at Energy for the past three years. It is important to him that women are represented in the field of robotics and engineering. The number of women in engineering fields has been on the rise and has reached a record high of 16.5% in 2021. One way that we can help improve those numbers is to continue to encourage our young women to persist and give them the opportunities to excel in these fields.
