The Green Girls STEM Foundation was created by the members of FIRST Tech Challenge Robotics team 7190 the Green Girls. We founded the Green Girls, an all-girls team, as fourth graders. Our mission was to create an environment where girls could explore their passions free from gender stereotypes. As we grew up through the FIRST Robotics programs, we wanted to give opportunities to other underrepresented groups in STEM so we founded The GG STEM Foundation. Since all of our members have graduated we have continued our legacy of diversity and inclusion by continuing to raise money for grants and scholarships for diverse STEM students that promote diversity in their own communities.
