NERDYGIRLS

Parker and Greta set a unique example for co-learning STEM – in an incredibly fun, epic way – in terms of storytelling, video tutorials, location design, meet-up’s, communications, gamification, event participation.

They are not just a role model for coders and nerds … but also for changemakers. We love seeing them use a for-real Harry Potter approach – like we do and seek to evolve in Change Generation Rising.

Parker and Greta dream of seeing their example spread to other cities around the world. We want to see that happen!

Part of realizing their dream is to finance robotics starter packs for newbies.

  • $100€ finances a simple kit
  • $300€ finances an advanced kit
  • $500€ unlocks a combination of both
  • $1,000€ equips a team

Packs go to Nerdygirls, new crews, and applicants on fire to level up to Overlord – and share their journey with us.

Full Story
Parker hasn’t always been a nerd. In fact, it happened by accident, when her friend asked her to go to a week-long robotics camp with her. Parker, having no idea what a robotics camp actually entailed, agreed to go. It turned out to be her best decision ever! They loved every single minute of building and programming a LEGO robot, and even won the competition!

Inspired, Parker joined her school’s FRC (FIRST Robotics Competition) team, feeling prepared to face all challenges. Oh boy, was she wrong. All her teammates were guys who had grown up building stuff and teaching themselves how to code, all confident to build a robot from scratch. Her experience? Um … a LEGO manual. That season, Parker and the girls got the job of … designing t-shirts! Arrgh, what a bummer!

Still, giving up was not an option. Fired up to pierce the mystery of code, Parker inhaled YouTube tutorials and asked a college student for help. “That season, at the competitions, our robot was running my code, and that was one of the best feelings I’ve ever had.” And she had only begun!

Realizing that girls need a fun way to develop their tech skills for the best of humanity’s future, Parker recruited her little sis Greta to map out a fun six-level challenge process to fast-track one’s skills from novice to overlord. Every Friday night, the underground robot society meets under a disco ball to program, solder, troubleshoot, fail and bounce back, mixing in anime, gaming, geeking out over shows and mandatory dance breaks – in preparation for league battles.
