We are Offical Partners with the Girl Scouts, and started a Chapter of SWE. Check out what we have been doing: https://www.instagram.com/phs_swenextclub/
Team Spyder created their first Society of Women Engineers (SWE) Chapter in 2018, and in 2019 won the San Diego County Engineer Council’s President Citation Award for their outstanding efforts in inspiring girls to go into STEM fields. Thier efforts include a guest lecture series of professionals and also tours to STEM business, such as Virgin Orbit. We are also offical Partners with the Girl Scouts San Diego. We recently traveled to St. Louis Design Lab to compete in the community engagement challenge for $1,000 grant to implement our project. We’re happy to announce that we are the recipient of the grant and will sponsor a GiRL in STEM Inspiration Day on May 18, 2019 at Poway High School for San Diego county girls in 5-8th grades.

is a social media movement to encourage girls and young women in STEM and FIRST. By showcasing the many incredible women of FIRST
and their stories, girls can find role models who they identify with and are inspired by. Through this social media campaign, we empower girls with the confidence to overcome cultural pressures, follow their dreams in STEM, and become active members of the FIRST community. We improve the culture of STEM by providing role models to inspire girls to become the next generation of science and technology leaders. Get Involved:
Create a video, sponsor our buttons, encourage young women and girls to pursue STEM, join or mentor a FIRST team or volunteer for one of the more than 2,600 FIRST events in your community. Be a part of the solution, be a part of the FIRST community!
