ABOUT OUR TEAMS
Founded in 2007, Rock N’ Roll Robots (#25)
was the first GSGLA-sponsored FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC)
team. A second team, Javabots (#5218)
, was formed in 2015, to accommodate more girls. FTC competitors build and program robots with advanced parts and learn many other skills such as community service, public speaking, and writing.
Our independent Girl Scout-affiliated community teams accept Girl Scouts from anywhere within the Greater Los Angeles region who are able to regularly attend meetings. Our members range from 7th to 12th grade
and come from eight different school districts. There is no experience required to attend! The teams are led by a dedicated group of mentors, including engineers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Active Season (Aug.-March)
Tuesdays 6:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
Saturdays 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. (Closer to competition days, we typically add Thursday and Friday evening meetings. Members also complete some tasks outside of meeting times.)
We meet on the beautiful campus of Mayfield Senior School, a Catholic, independent, all-girls high school, located at:
500 Bellefontaine Street
Pasadena, CA 91105
Due to Girl Scout safety regulations, parents are required to complete first aid/CPR training and chaperone for approximately 60 hours a year. If you have any questions, please contact Melissa Tighe
, Mayfield's Director of Innovation and Community Partnerships.
