We Thrive On Challenging Projects That Produce Bigger Rewards.

The Right Solution.

What started over a cup of coffee by two young, determined girls, has now become a school-wide movement towards ingenuity in engineering, coding, and business.

More than Robots

Girls often come in not knowing what to expect - of the program nor of themselves.

STEM Inspiration

The robots are a vehicle for students to learn important life skills.

Coopertition

Competing always, but assisting and enabling others when you can offer a helping hand.

Inspiring Science and Technology Exploration

Learning from teammates, teaching teammates, learning from Mentors.

Gracious Professionalism

Enjoy the satisfaction of knowing one has acted with integrity and sensitivity.

Fierce Competition and Mutual Gain

Gracious Professionalism is part of pursuing a meaningful life.

Why We Reign

There are many parts of our team that differentiate us from other FIRST robotics teams though the most prominent is the diversity of our all-girl team. Reign Robotics 5588 is the only all-girls FIRST robotics team in Washington State. This unique aspect gives us both the opportunity and the obligation to provide more female representation in a typically male-dominated field.  Our hope is to inspire, empower and encourage other women to join the STEAM movement.  We have seen the impact of this empowerment firsthand from our own team that has exponentially grown over the years.  Our girls create a unique community with a wide variety of student backgrounds and passions. Although every girl may love robotics, each of us brings other insights from our lives. The different perspectives brought from each team member allows us to be both idiosyncratic and cohesive.  As a result, we are a group made up of people dedicated to hard work, innovation, and collaboration.

We currently have over 30 members serving as a community dedicated to improving opportunities for women in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) fields working with FIRST® Robotics. FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) is an organization that seeks to further education in STEAM and their vision is to “To transform our culture by creating a world where science and technology are celebrated and where young people dream of becoming science and technology leaders.”
